Harrison Ford in Blade Runner talks

Harrison Ford plays Rick Deckard in director Ridley Scott's 1982 cult classic Blade Runner

Harrison Ford has revealed he has been in talks with director Ridley Scott to appear in a sequel to cult movie Blade Runner.

The original movie was a sleeper hit which had a lukewarm reception when it came out in 1982 but went on to gain popularity and has had an enduring appeal for movie fans.

During a visit to London, the US star confirmed to games and entertainment website IGN.com that he had been in discussion about a second film.

It was disclosed earlier in the year that Scott was keen to develop a sequel and screenwriter Michael Green had been hired to work on the script.

Ford played Rick Deckard, who tracked down robots known as replicants in the sci-fi thriller, which was based on a short story Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? by Philip K Dick.

While promoting his new film Ender's Game, Ford admitted he had been in contact with Scott and said: "Yes, we've been chatting about it."

The 71-year old actor added: "I truly admire Ridley as a man and as a director, and I would be very happy to engage again with him in the further telling of this story."
