Blade Runner Live-Action TV Show

A “Blade Runner” live-action TV show is in development according to Ridley Scott.

Reported to BBC on Monday, the “House of Gucci” helmer suggested the “Blade Runner” adaptation is being plotted as a 10-episode series: “We [have already] written the pilot for ‘Blade Runner’ and the bible. So, we’re already presenting ‘Blade Runner’ as a TV show, the first 10 hours.”

Speaking about his latest film, House of Gucci, the 83-year-old hit back at the criticism from Patrizia Gucci in April that the MGM film was “stealing the identity of a family to make a profit to increase the income of the Hollywood system.”

Said Scott: “It was about murder. They forget: He was murdered. One of the brothers went to jail for tax evasion. So don’t talk to me about making a profit. Are you kidding? When you do that you tend to become public domain.”

Asked about the tragic death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the western Rust, Scott said that he had live ammunition anywhere near his productions.

“I don’t know what a real gun or real ammunition was doing on the goddamned set,” he said. “Someone should get in trouble for that. Absolutely crazy. You never have any live ammunition near the set.”

Scott said that he often uses guns that have a solid barrel. “You get a click and a recoil, but nothing will happen. You can put a cap in it, but it’s not a blank.”

“Kitbag,” a biography of Napoleon Bonaparte starring Joaquin Phoenix as the French emperor and Jodie Comer as Marie Antoinette, is Scott’s next project. Production will begin on January 15, according to the director.
