Ridley Scott - Ridley Scott Directing New Blade Runner

Ridley Scott will direct the new 'Blade Runner' movie.

The 'Alien' director has signed up for the project - which he will make with Alcon Entertainment - although it is not clear whether he intends to do a prequel or sequel to the original 1982 film, Deadline.com reports.

The movie was loosely based on the Philip K. Dick book 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?' and starred Harrison Ford, who played blade runner Richard Decker assigned to hunt down organic superhuman robots who were living on Earth. However, his life changes when he falls for one of the enemies and struggles to keep her from being destroyed.

It is unknown whether Scott will get Ford to reprise his role or get in a new actor.

Scott is currently working on the 'Alien' prequel 'Prometheus' and recently revealed it would have a "really nasty" feel.

He said: "The film will be really tough, really nasty. It's the dark side of the moon.

"We are talking about Gods and engineers. Engineers of space. And were the aliens designed as a form of biological warfare? Or biology that would go in and clean up a planet."
