clint mansell
reznor/ross

To add to that, we're all desensitized now to these amazing "futuristic" worlds created on screen with special effects. Back when Blade Runner was released, that wasn't easy or common in films, but with CGI, we see these types of worlds created all the time so we're not as easily impressed. I can't imagine anything made today that would reliably replicate that "dark" world created in the film.

That would be a great choice. He did a great job on the soundtrack for a strange (but cool) movie.

I have high hopes, but the realist in me has to agree. Tron:Legacy was such a disappointment. It could have been great, but they just had to F- it up. I much would have preferred that they just left it alone.


On another note, definitely interested in Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" spinoff on the Space Jockey in Alien.

Is there anything sacred anymore?

This will be straight out of Gremlins 2: "A fabulous remake of the classic in vivid 3D, and with a happy ending".

There should be a law against directors continuing their classics. It should have put in effect before George Lucas ruined the original Star Wars trilogy.

For the sake of cost effectiveness it's going to be all greenscreen and CGI. And it will suck.

or they should do it on a shoe string budged. A kind of psychological study, film noir. A one set affair, one dark room, two chairs, a table, a small desk lamp, the cyborg is interviewed by Harrison Ford for an hour and forty minutes. Vangelis is sitting down at his CS80 in the corner of the room...the sax player is outside in the hall way for that distant reverb sound... but the catch is that Vangelis woudn't be playing a real CS80 but Arturia's CS80V using a two octave midi controller. Ha! That is what will make the film.

I wish they would just do another Philip K. Dick book as a movie, and not try to extend it, although maybe they'll get someone who is really into Philip K. Dick, give him meds to make him schizophrenic and an unlimited amount of speed to write the sequel... That would be more important than Vangelis IMO. Also, I hope they keep it dark and not spell out the whole movie in dialog, that was part of the charm of the original.

How about Jeff Mills? He has already done some Blade Runner inspired music Deckard is an awesome track.

Ridley is also doing a sort of prequel of Alien. Alien and Blade Runner are two of the best horror/sci fi like movies made. I think they are. He has a huge fan base at comic con and every year fans have begged him to do sci fi again.

If anyone can do these remakes or versions of the films justice - it is Ridley. Some people have said leave it alone.

Ridley will hire someone who is good. Philip Dick's stuff was re-written or the screen play was written by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples.

Ridley Scott is not like the usual vermin and filth in Hollywood. The guy has some standards. Blade Runner and Alien were stunning and I think Alien was possibly better.

Ridley works a lot with Hans Zimmer. Wrong choice. I say Gary Numan. He nailed it back in 1979-1981.

I don't want to be rude, but in my opinion, since Blade Runner Vangelis has only made very minor works. I know, is the typical purist opinion but I think that the old albums are much much more alive, in lots of senses. Sorry but things like "Oceanic" are a joke if you compare them with Opera Sauvage, See you Later, Albedo... Just my opinion.

The "1492" soundtrack is about the last thing he made really worth listening to IMO.


And as for a Blade Runner sequel - the world doesn't need it and it's going to be aweful. Anyone watched the latest Terminator movie? Right.

Why "continuing". Why not a prequel.

I'm sure there are many who would like to see things that us people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion or c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser Gate....

This calls for a serious music approach. Any one with a circuit bent xylophone?

The company who bought the rights have stated that they have a reverence for the original - and I assume they mean the directors cut. This won't be gremlins 2 if it ever even gets to production. Philip Dick may be gone, but his themes are what matter; nobody has ever adapted one of his books in a literal fashion.

He's not. He's better.

I think Reznor better suits dystopian film-noir than Vangelis's sacharine synthomania. It was too 80's, even for the 80's.

Fan-ism aside, the soundtrack of that film was HALF the film's mystique. To do it different... IE an updated style would ruin the entire feel of the Blade Runner world.

I think Vangelis and Reznor both excel in their particular arena's, but Reznor seems sort of a polar opposite of synth sound from the original Blade Runner.
But like everyone says, they will dick this movie up anyway to reach the most money audience (maybe add comical pop culture references like Shreck...) so might as well have Katy Perry, Maroon5 and Lil Wayne on the soundtrack
