Denis Villeneuve is set to direct Harrison Ford in a direct sequel to the 1982 classic scifi film Blade Runner.  The film will take place several decades after the original, and Ford will reprise his role as blade runner and suspected replicant Rick Deckard.  Unfortunately, the existence of this sequel answers one of the film's most oft debated questions with finality: if the now 72 year old Harrison Ford is playing Deckard, he can't a replicant.  For what it's worth, Ford has said the script is the best he's ever read and the sequel is described as "potent" and "faithful."

Ridley Scott will produce the film alongside Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.

Belfast Telegraph reported that Carrie Fisher recently said an interview that she, along with Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill, are all expected to report to work in March or April for their continued roles in the upcoming addition to the Star Wars series.
Fisher said in the interview that she's looking forward to returning to her role as princess Leia. "I'd like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again - but with white hair," she said. "I think that would be funny."

This isn't the first we've heard of Fisher reprising her role as Princess Leia, but it's the closest to real confirmation we've gotten so far.

7 Things We Don't Want from a New Indiana Jones Movie


A collective groan echoed across the Internet May 5 as a new Indiana Jones movie was sort of confirmed.

It's been seven years since a bored Harrison Ford last picked up his whip to deliver a terrible movie. Should he don his fedora again, here are a few things we really don't want in a fifth movie in the aged franchise.

At 73 years old, Harrison Ford stands to make at least $34 million for reprising the role of Han Solo. Ford was paid $25 million up front, and given a 0.5% share of the movie's earnings, meaning when the film hits $2 billion worldwide (it made over $500 million on its opening weekend), he'll get another $9 million. Meanwhile, Carrie Fisher only got $1.5 million to bring back General Organa.

Even that's a considerable bit more than what the film's two new stars, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, received; they each only got $450,000 (but do receive a share of the profits once it earns $1 billion globally). If you're keeping track, that means Ford is making 56 times what they are, and 17 times what Carrie Fisher got.

Han Solo is a pretty big deal, but that's still pretty ridiculous. I guess it's a little bit of back-pay for the measly $10,000 he received for the original film.
