This news: Harrison Ford To Star In ‘Blade Runner 2’
strikes me as a supremely bad idea, exactly for this reason:
Moreover, Alien was just the first of many films. Blade Runner—based on Phillip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep—is a stand-alone film, and one shrouded in mystery. It’s one of those films that could be talked about forever without ever reaching a solid conclusion about its meaning or its murky ending. That’s part of what makes it a classic.
Sheesh, Ridley, just leave well enough alone for a change.
