Ridley Scott describes a scene from Blade Runner sequel

It sounds a visual treat

After melting our eyes with the jaw-dropping loveliness of some of Prometheus’s visuals, Ridley Scott looks set to repeat the trick on the forthcoming sequel to Blade Runner, from which the director has described a potential scene.

Scott was asked by Collider what kind of visuals he’ll be employing on the Blade Runner sequel, and rather than attempting to explain any general design aesthetic, the director jumped in and outlined a specific scene.

“There’ll be a vast farmland where there are no hedges or anything in sight,” says Scott, “and it’s flat like the plains of - where’s the Great Plains in America? Kansas, where you can see for miles.  And it’s dirt, but it’s being raked.  On the horizon is a combine harvester which is futuristic with klieg lights, because it’s dawn.”

“The harvester is as big as six houses,” he continues. “In the foreground is a small white clapboard hut with a porch as if it was from Grapes Of Wrath. From the right comes a car, coming in about six feet off the ground being chased by a dog. And that’s the end of it, I’m not gonna tell you anything else.”

All of which sounds pretty enticing to us. No matter what else you say about Prometheus, it looks an absolute treat, and if Scott can reproduce that for the Blade Runner sequel, we won’t be disappointed. No release date is in place as yet, but from the sound of how things are progressing, one should arrive sooner rather than later.

Are you intrigued by Blade Runner 2, or should Ridley leave well alone? Tell us, below...

      I have no problem with remakes, prequels or even sequels made 30 years laters etc If people don't wna see it its that simple don't and if you do, then do, another Blade Runner isn't going to diminish the quality of the original so I wish people would stop hating and just enjoy what Mr Scott is going to do, who knows people might be talking about this the way they talk about the original today

      @TheKingofCinema, who is this we you speak of? Surely you don't think you speak for everyone when you come out with c**p like that. Prometheus was amazing and the next one is going to be amazing too, I know this because I have faith in Ridley. When I was first watching Prometheus I had thoughts that maybe it wasn't very good compared to the original but if you watch it again, if you think it over it's actually on par with the original. When you first see what the Space Jockeys are you think it's rubbish but when you think about it they're great.

      Hmmmm.. This sound like a sceen mentioned in the DVD making of and was meant to be filmed for original blade runner. Farmer out in the field harvesting his crops, end of the day comes home and finds Table set, soup bubbling away, only to come face to face with a blade runner (Deckard?) they chat and then the blade runner shoots farmer, then pulls his bottom jaw out to retrieve a chip. Revealing the farmer to be a replicant. The blade runner then leaves is a hiden spinner. Now if this is going to be in the new film, and Harrison ford is also going to be in new film.. Could this be his death scene? Many years have passed deckard has hidden away as a farmer only to be tracked down by a blade runner.. It would prove once and for all that deckard was a replicant.. And stop any nonsense of a men in black 2 kind of sequel.. New up and coming blade runner has to get deckard out of retirement for one last job.. Please God No!!

      Pssh. This sequel thing is a s****y idea. Everyone knows that James Cameron should be directing. We can call it "Blade Runners."

      I'm sorry, but making sequels and prequels can diminish the originals, looks at star wars! though maybe in your defence he changed the originals but mostly so they could fit in with the new c**p. Unfortunately Prometheus has left a slightly bitter taste and not completely lost faith but I was disappointed with the movie, and now he could taint Bladerunner........ Well fingers crossed Still can't belive you like Alien 3/4 over Alien Dalidab, but thats your opinion and even though crazy as it sounds to me, you still have the right to it....

      Thanks BradleyRobyn. I'm gonna be rich. Also I thoroughly enjoyed Prometheus. It did have its problems though. The score/soundtrack was very poor half the time and most of the characters were completely forgettable. Dont get me started on why Benjamin Button was in the film. Honestly why didnt they just get an old person to play Mr Weyland? Having said all this I still loved the film mainly because of how it links up with the Alien universe that Ridley created.

      I'm still not decided about Prometheus, but I did watch it as more of a Blade Runner film than an Alien film at times. [mild SPOILER] Dreams. The clue that Deckard is a Replicant (according to Sir Ridley) is that Edward James Olmos knows he dreams of unicorns... in Prometheus, the Artificial Human (replicant in all but name) can watch the dreams of real humans.

      I personally think that Ridley has lost his touch of recent. His last truly great film, in my opinion, was Gladiator - everything since, with the exception of Black Hawk Down which i'd say was very good, but no classic movie, has been either average or poor. Kingdom of Heaven, Hannibal, Matchstick Men, American Gangster, Robin Hood and now Prometheus - none of them particularly memorable. Only Kingdom of Heaven is one i'd watch more than once, but not that often. I think his story telling ability has made way for more stylised film-making. Oh and with regards to the score in Prometheus, did anyone else think that it would have suited the new Superman movie more?

      Even before I saw Prometheus I knew this was a bad idea.
