HARRISON Ford has been approached to appear in a sequel to 1982 sci-fi classic 'Blade Runner', in which he originally played bounty hunter Rick Deckhard.

The 71-year-old action movie star is being sought to reprise his role as bounty hunter Rick Deckhard in a sequel to the sci-fi classic, originally released in 1982.

Already on board with the project are Ridley Scott, who directed the original movie, and Hampton Fancher, who adapted the screenplay from Philip K. Dick's book 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?'

Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove, founders of Alcon Entertainment, who are developing the movie, told The Hollywood Reporter: "We believe that Hampton Fancher and Michael Green have crafted with Ridley Scott an extraordinary sequel to one of the greatest films of all time. We would be honoured, and we are hopeful, that Harrison will be part of our project."

Harrison is already re-living his glory days with his current project, reprising his role as Han Solo for the upcoming 'Star Wars: Episode VII'.

In April Director J.J. Abrams hosted a bonding session at upmarket London restaurant 34 where original cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Peter Mayhew were joined by new stars Adam Driver and Andy Serkis for the first time, ahead of a planned script read-through for the highly anticipated new movie.
