This past week the news has been skipping around the internet regarding the progress of a sequel to Blade Runner. Scott Free, a production company owned by the film's original director Ridley Scott, has hired Michael Green, one of the credited writers for the Green Lantern film, to perform rewrites on a sequel to Blade Runner that original writer Hampton Fancher has put together. This is no guarantee that Green will be the only writer to try this or that Scott will wind up directing it. At the moment, as long as the story is on paper, it's a movie that "could" happen, rather than will happen. It is unsure if any of the original cast from the film will appear or even be mentioned. In my mind, it is not the question of who is involved that is the main issue. I feel that the whole premise of doing a sequel is flawed for these five reasons that I will detail. Please note that these arguments are intended to apply to a film sequel. There have already been 3 official novel sequels to the film, written by K. W. Jeter, Blade Runner 2: The Edge of Human, Blade Runner 3: Replicant Night and Blade Runner 4: Eye and Talon.
