Harrison Ford will return to his starring role in the sequel to “Blade Runner,” the 1982 hit sci-fi classic, and Denis Villeneuve is negotiating to direct the much-anticipated movie.

In 2012, Ridley Scott, who directed the first movie, announced that a sequel was under consideration. More than two years later, plans are firming up, although there’s no release date yet, and Scott will produce the new movie, along with Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.

Scott told MTV that Ford loved the “Blade Runner 2” script: "I sent him this [script] and he said it’s the best thing he’s ever read. It’s very relevant to what happened in the first one. I'm not just doing a sequel with lots of action and see how far we can go with the special effects because you can't really. Blade Runner kind of landed on a somehow very credible future. And it's very difficult to change that because it's been so influential with everything else."

"We are honored that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve, who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on 'Prisoners,'" Kosove and Johnson said in a joint statement. “Hampton (Fancher) and Michael (Green), 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.”

As with announcements of most remakes of popular movies, fans had mixed opinions about a “Blade Runner” sequel:
