No Blade Runner talks for Ford

Rumours that Harrison Ford is in talks to star in the Blade Runner sequel are "patently false", the film's producers have said.

Fans of the 1982 sci-fi classic were abuzz with the news that Harrison, 70, was in early talks to reprise his role as Rick Deckard.

But Alcon Entertainment, who are teaming up with Ridley Scott for the reboot, told Deadline: "It is absolutely patently false that there has been any discussion about Harrison Ford being in Blade Runner. To be clear, what we are trying to do with Ridley now is go through the painstaking process of trying to break the back of the story, figure out the direction we're going to take the movie and find a writer to work on it.

"The casting of the movie could not be further from our minds at this moment."

Asked if Harrison could resurface in the film, Alcon's Andrew Kosove said: "In advance of knowing what we're going to do, I supposed you could say yes, he could. But I think it is quite unlikely."
