Director Ridley Scott has quite a number of projects on his slate, including The Martian, the Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2. The filmmaker reveals in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly that all of those projects are written, although there may be some scheduling issues.
Back in May, Alcon Entertainment officially asked Harrison Ford to return as Deckard in the Untitled Blade Runner Project, and the filmmaker later confirmed that the actor will be involved.
"It's written and it's damn good. Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years - despite the accident (referring to Ford's Star Wars injury). So yes, that will happen."
The filmmaker claims that Blade Runner 2 may go into production soon after his next project, The Martian, which may not leave much time for him to make Prometheus 2, which is already slated for release on March 4, 2016.
"That's the problem, I've got a lot of ducks in a row. But they're all written."
When asked about The Martian, the filmmaker revealed he has already completed storyboards, with production to begin this November.
"It's a very good book. It's like Robinson Crusoe-if you were marooned or shipwrecked, how do you survive?"
The filmmaker revealed he will shoot The Martian, which stars Matt Damon as an astronaut who becomes stranded on Mars, in Budapest.
"I think I'm going to shoot in Budapest. And we'll probably shoot in Wadi Rum for Mars. I like Wadi Rum-it's the best view I've ever seen of what could be Mars."
