Its due next October, and we're slightly concerned that its presence might taint the brilliance of the original 1982 masterpiece from which it spawned, but if Harrison Ford and Ridley Scott are on board then AFICIONADO will certainly give Sony's upcoming BLADE RUNNER 2049 a try, what with the return of former Blade Runner "retirement" cop in Ford's Rick Deckard, involved with an all-star cast including Robin Wright, Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto, Lennie James and Dave Bautista. How the story continues on from the original one-off tale of Replicants and future tense excitement , I don't know, though I certainly wish director Denis Villeneuve the best of success here- he really has got a lot to live up to.
