The notion of a prequel/sequel/reboot of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner hasn't gone over well with sci-fi movie fans. If you thought things couldn't get more dubious, Alcon Entertainment announced today that Michael Green is in talks to rewrite the current script for a Blade Runner sequel which will be directed by Scott.
Who is Michael Green?
His only feature film writing credit comes in the form of 2011's Green Lantern. Yes, the Green Lantern that starred Ryan Reynolds and barely made back its $200 million production budget and was a punching bag for critics. To be fair, Green was one of four writers who took a stab at the Lantern script.
Green has cut his teeth writing for various television shows over the past 15 years including Smallville, Everwood, Heroes, Kings and most recently The River. He's been attached to writing a script for DC Comics superhero The Flash and recently completed rewrites on Steven Spielberg's Robopocalypse and WB's Gods and Kings.
There's no release date set for the sequel, but Green's hire assures us that the project is definitely on Scott and Alcon's immediate plans.
How do you feel about Green re-writing the Blade Runner sequel?

Wow, outside of the green lantern most of his efforts look very good. I really liked "The River" and was bummed to see it canceled. I'm still not sure about a sequel to Blade runner but...I don't know.
I like most super hero movies but , the green lantern movie sucked and thats sad because the green lantern is one of my favorite characters
