I think Trent Reznor should do it.

he turned out to be Norman Mailer

but seriously this sounds awesome Bladerunner is one of my favourite sci-fi movies plus the music was amazing in it

Maybe a major studio remake of Dune could even be in the cards someday

It may be a prequel, it may be a sequel. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross would be great. This is years away tho...

God ... It's about time ... If there's any cinematic "world" I'd love to re-enter, it's that one ...
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain ... Time to sequel ...

I think Reznor would do the material justice. I love Ulrich but his tone doesn't seem right for Blade Runner. I think Murcof would do it right. Great blend between electronica and manipulated orchestra. Plus he has a dark kind of sound that fits the genre. Autechre would be fascinating but too hard for most of the world to follow.

I think any of the the people mentioned above have the talent to make the soundtrack. Personally, I loved the Tron Legacy soundtrack Daft Punk did. The original soundtrack for Blade Runner is classic also! And of course the soundtrack to The Social Network is just breathtaking when accompanied with the movie. I would be happy seeing any of those people doing the music.

If it aint Vangelis for the music, I shall curse the movie!

Well, so much have been changing since the 80's but I still have deep hope that Vangelis would be interested enough for new blade runner.

I can't imagine Ridley Scott using anyone else but Vangelis. Their cooperation goes back many many years.

But whatever they do, it is going to be very hard to meet the expectations. You can't beat perfect and Blade Runner is all the way up there!

IMO Vangelis will be essential to give the visuals the right feel; I might even go to the cinema to see this

Trent Reznor yes and so could Atticus Ross, He is a very modern composer, "BOOK OF ELI" he could pull it off, But Vangaless is still in the game, why not!

My favorite alternative would be Cliff Martinez, who did the Steven Soderbergh's Solaris soundtrack!

I pray to the Almighty Oscillator Modulator for Vangelis to be left out of this. His output lately has been not worthy of the iconic music of the past. The bombastic pseudo orchestral approach of late is off putting to me. However, should Vangelis be locked in in a reconstructed Nemo studio with a CS80, a few Roland synths including a VP330, a Korg 700, a Rhodes piano and a sax player, I would be the first to send him crates of fine wine to make the composition process as inspired as possible.
I speak as a huge Vangelis fan btw ;P.

But otherwise, a sequel to Blade Runner? Part of me is hyped and can't wait, part of me dreads a total disaster.

My vote: Vangelis should do the work.

Bonus: on the same gear he used back then. There's just something about the sound of those tracks... they sound so bladerunnerish even if you just listen to the soundtrack without the movie going on in front of you.

if the new movie is as good as the first - deep, slow, interesting - not another hollywood bang bang CGI fest, I hope they could get Vangelis again to create MORE of the same style as the first.... and not just some hot today, gone tomorrow composer.

I'd love to do it as well.

Anyhow, if Vangelis says no, maybe they can get this guy... just give him a real CS80 and he'll be good to go.
