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.
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.

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.
This movie is going to be so bad if its a sequel: FACT. Who do you think is going to write it? Philip K Dick Of the Dead? lol, its going to be the same underpaid, rushed and safe Hollywood writer who wrote the new Tron movie okay
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.
