Looks like Scott will not be directing 'Blade Runner 2' (will be producing though), which means, based on everything I have been reading/assuming, he will be moving on from 'The Martian' to 'Prometheus 2: Paradise'. At least, I am hopeful 'P2:P' is next on his directing list. Not sure how I feel about 'Blade Runner 2' in someone else's hands, but I guess we'll find out.
From [url=https://variety.com/2014/film/news/ridley-scott-exodus-gods-and-kings-christian-bale-1201363668/]this[/url] Variety article...
[i]When â€œThe Martianâ€ wraps later this winter, Scott already has a fair idea what heâ€™ll be doing next, though it likely wonâ€™t be the much-anticipated â€œBlade Runnerâ€ sequel he developed with the original filmâ€™s co-screenwriter, Hampton Fancher. â€œWe talked at length about what it could be, and came up with a pretty strong three-act storyline, and it all makes sense in terms of how it relates to the first one,â€ says Scott, who adds that fans can expect to see Harrison Ford back in the saddle as the futuristic gumshoe Rick Deckard. â€œHarrison is very much part of this one, but really itâ€™s about finding him; he comes in in the third act.â€ Per Scott, that Alcon Entertainment production should go before the cameras within the next year, but with someone else directing (heâ€™ll produce).[/i]

i just hope he picks a director that can deliver what he delivered, all the subtleties, all the nuances and the hardcore violence that originally set this film apart from anything that was around at the time

Just heard about this and I am pretty disappointed by this announcement but I'm hoping a decent director will step up to make this film good.
