Denis Villeneuve is set to direct the film, which will be executive produced by Scott for Alcon Entertainment. Hampton Fancher, who co-wrote the original movie with David Peoples, and Michael Green have written the original screenplay, based on an idea by Fancher and Scott. It will be set some decades after the first film.
“We are honoured that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve, who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on Prisoners,” Alcon’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said. “Hampton and Michael, with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most universally celebrated films of all time, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with this amazing, creative team.”
