(That’s Philip K. Dick, you people)
There’s word out there that one of the writers for Eagle Eye is working on a sequel script to “Bladerunner” (based on Philip K. Dick’s “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” originally published in 1968). I’m of mixed opinions on this. Usually sequels, particularly ones not from the original author, are terrible. It’s not too hard to think of bad sequels (“There can be only one!” – Highlander…oh wait, they’re really aliens from planet Zeist! d’oh!).
On the other hand, the Bladerunner universe is compelling. So, hopefully, it won’t be a sequel per se, but rather another story set in the Bladerunner universe. Here’s to hoping that we get a good SciFi movie out of this. And while you’re at it, how about “Buckaroo Banzai Against the World Crime League” ? Huh?
