Blade Runner looks set to return, after Amazon Studios announced that it’s producing a sequel series – called “Blade Runner 2099” – for Prime Video.
Ridley Scott, who directed the original 1982 “Blade Runner” movie, is on board as an executive producer, Amazon said on Thursday, as is Silka Louisa (Shining Girls), who also wrote the script.
The sci-fi film is set in a dystopian Los Angeles of 2019, where original Blade Runner Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) has to fight insurgent synthetic humans also known as replicas.
In the 2017, the Blade Runner universe returned to the screen with Denis Villeneuve’s sequel “Blade Runner 2049,” starring Ryan Gosling as well as Ford.
Based on the title, the new Amazon series is likely to be set in 2099.
So far, the streaming giant hasn’t disclosed any details concerning the plot or cast, however.

Arriving before dawn and dressed in a black suit and tie, Beckham did not attempt to conceal his emotions as he joined the queue of grievers waiting to see the Queen lying in state.
The former captain of England’s soccer team continued to wait in line for the next 13 hours. Speaking from the queue to ITV, he stated, “I thought by coming at 2 AM it was going to be a little bit quieter — I was wrong.”
Beckham described himself as a royalist and a “huge fan of the Royal family,” as he spoke highly of the Queen and what it meant to him to be able to join his fellow countrymen in honoring her legacy.
“Her Majesty meant so much in so many different ways,” said the teary-eyed soccer star, who has been close to the Royal family for many years and has historical attended events such as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in 2018.
“I can speak on my behalf of the amount of times I was able to meet her through my career,” he continued, “Every time we stood there and wore those Three Lions shirts and I had my armband and we sang ‘God Save Our Queen,’ that was something that meant so much to us. Every time that we did it, it was something special.”
“This day was always going to be a difficult day,” the former athlete said to interviewers, “Our thoughts are with the family, it’s very special to hear all of the stories from people here.”
As one of England’s leading athletes for many years, Beckham met with Queen Elizabeth II several times since his rise to fame. It was clear as he spoke with reporters that this was more than just a stunt to see his name in headlines.
“The most special moment for me was to receive my OBE. I took my grandparents with me who were huge royalists,” Beckham recalled on receiving the second highest ranking Order of British Empire (OBE) award from Her Majesty in 2003.
“I was so lucky that I was able to have a few moments like that in my life to be around Her Majesty. It’s a sad day, but a day to remember,” he solemnly reflected.
As the world mourns the incredible legacy and reign that spanned seven decades, inappropriate controversies regarding who should be in attendance, including members of the family, have surfaced.

The shocking incident took place on Thursday as the controversial congresswoman was leaving the United States Capitol building.
After being surrounded by the large group of gun control advocates, the 48-year-old representative of Georgia’s 14th congressional district engaged in a heated back-and-forth regarding gun violence.
Even more shocking is the fact that MTG herself tweeted a video of the incident in which she appears to kick a young woman two separate times after the young woman – who has since been identified as 18-year-old Marianna Pecora – walked in front of the congresswoman.
“Did she literally just tweet out the video of her kicking me?” Pecora tweeted.
Nearly 25 minutes earlier, Greene posted the video to her Twitter account calling Pecora and the other activists “foolish cowards” and suggested they are “idiots.”
“These foolish cowards want the government to take away guns & the rights of parents to defend their children in schools,” MTG wrote alongside the 3-minute clip.
“You have to be an idiot to think gun control will create a utopian society where criminals disarm themselves and obey the law,” she continued before adding gun free zones “kill people.”
Despite the video which appeared to show MTG kicking Pecora two separate times, the congresswoman’s communications director, Nick Dyer, told NPR the allegations are “absolutely ridiculous” and a “lie.”
Pecora, who also spoke to NPR, admitted she was “a little shaken” emotionally in the wake of the incident.
“It’s incredibly disheartening to me that a member of Congress has so little respect for the people of our country that she finds it acceptable to turn to trying to hurt them,” she told the outlet.
Late Thursday evening, Santiago Mayer – who serves as the executive director of the group Voters of Tomorrow and who was also with Pecora at the time of the incident – revealed the group is looking into pressing charges against MTG over her allegedly belligerent behavior.
“To answer the most prevalent question about pressing charges: we’re talking to our legal team and keeping our options open,” Mayer said.

Venezuelan migrants, sent from Texas, in front of the official Washington residence of US Vice President Kamala Harris in September 2022
Washington (AFP) – Fifty or so migrants sent to the wealthy island of Martha’s Vineyard in the northeastern United States as part of a political battle over immigration will be temporarily housed at a military base not far from there, the governor of Massachusetts said Friday.
The migrants, mostly Venezuelans and including children, arrived Wednesday at Martha’s Vineyard, a Democratic stronghold and popular vacation spot for the country’s political elite.
They had been put on board flights from Texas which the Republican governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, says he chartered.
Despite local mobilization to help the new arrivals, the island is “not equipped to provide sustainable accommodation, and state officials developed a plan to deliver a comprehensive humanitarian response,” said a statement from the administration of Governor Charlie Baker, a Republican.
State authorities on Friday offered to move the migrants, on a voluntary basis, to temporary accommodation at the nearby Joint Base Cape Cod.
“Families will not be separated,” the statement said, noting that the base had previously served as an emergency shelter and that the migrants would have access to care and legal services.
According to local media, the migrants were on their way to the base by midday Friday.
Some of them had said they had not known they were being sent to an island.
Local Democrat legislator Julian Cyr called for an investigation.
“Whether or not this meets the legal threshold for human trafficking, this meets the moral threshold of human trafficking,” he told local television, adding that he hoped the Department of Justice would look into the incident.
Sending migrants to Democratic strongholds has become a political cudgel for the American right as a means of denouncing President Joe Biden’s immigration policy, which they say has allowed undocumented migrants to cross the border with Mexico in large numbers.
It is also a way to try to place immigration at the center of the campaign for the midterm elections in November.
On Thursday morning, two buses carrying migrants arrived near the official residence of Vice President Kamala Harris in Washington, a place chosen on purpose because she is overseeing the explosive issue of immigration for the White House. They had been sent by Texas’s Republican Governor Greg Abbott.
The White House on Friday again slammed the Republican governors’ tactics towards people who have fled the socialist regime in Venezuela.
“These were children. They were moms. They were fleeing communism. And what did Governor DeSantis and Governor Abbott do to them? They use them as political pawns, treating them like chattel in a cruel, premeditated political stunt,” said White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre.
“These are the kinds of tactics we see from smugglers in places like Mexico and Guatemala. And for what? A photo op?” she said.
But DeSantis shot back by mocking the fact that the migrants had been transferred off the wealthy island.
“By the way, they already bussed them out. They said, ‘We want everyone. No one’s illegal.’ And they’re gone within 48 hours,” he said.
