'Eagle Eye' Writer Sets the Air Clear on 'Blade Runner 2'


John Glenn reveals his non-involvement with the sequel project that has been hinted previously by his former writing partner Travis Wright.

A sequel to 1982 "Blade Runner" has become talk of the town after SlashFilm reported that the two writers of this week's Box Office champion "Eagle Eye" are working on it. In an updated report, one of the mentioned writers, John Glenn clarifies that he is no longer involved in the project and apologizes for the confusion that his ex writing partner Travis Wright has created regarding the sequel.

In a Q&A session hosted by Creative Screenwriting event, Wright said that he and Glenn have been working on various treatments for a Blade Runner sequel over the last couple years. It was also claimed that producer Bud Yorkin is on board although no talks of the sequel being developed by a studio has been outed.

On this take, Glenn explained in an e-mail to SlashFilm, stating "There was a point where Travis and I were working with Bud Yorkin on a sequel to Blade Runner, but that was years back. It never got too far off the ground because the movie is so perfect, so the more we thought about it, the more uneasy we became with the idea. Anyway, just an note to clear the air."

The original "Blade Runner" tells the story of a cop who specializes in terminating replicants in the year 2019. Harrison Ford took the main role as Rick Deckard.
