Harrison Ford has been asked to reprise his role as bounty hunter Rick Deckhard in a sequel to sci-fi classic, Blade Runner, originally released in 1982.

Already on board with the project are Ridley Scott, who directed the original film, and Hampton Fancher, who adapted the screenplay from Philip K. Dick's novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove, founders of Alcon Entertainment, who are developing the movie, told The Hollywood Reporter, "We believe that Hampton Fancher and Michael Green have crafted with Ridley Scott an extraordinary sequel to one of the greatest films of all time.

They added, "We would be honored, and we are hopeful, that Harrison will be part of our project."

Harrison is already re-living his glory days with his current project, reprising his role as Han Solo for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII.

In April, director, J.J. Abrams, hosted a bonding session at London restaurant 34 where the original cast members — including Harrison, Carrie Fisher and Peter Mayhew — were joined by new stars Adam Driver and Andy Serkis for the first time, ahead of a planned read-through for the highly-anticipated film.
