Eagle Eye’ scribe pens ‘Blade Runner 2’
Eagle Eye writer Travis Wright is working on a sequel to Blade Runner with the original film’s producer Bud Yorkin.
At a recent Q&A session to promote Eagle Eye, Wright revealed that he is developing a script and pre-visualisation sequences for a potential follow-up to the sci-fi classic.
Blade Runner, which starred Harrison Ford as a detective on the hunt for human-machine hybrids known as replicants, was based on Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
Wright’s former writing partner John Glenn claimed that he had worked on the sequel but became “uneasy” with the idea of making a follow-up to Ridley Scott’s 1982 film.
“It never got too far off the ground because the movie is so perfect, so the more we thought about it, the more uneasy we became with the idea,” he said
