The fires of Orc

Ridley Scott has committed to direct and produce a prequel or sequel or something for Blade Runner.

The film was not a blockbuster when first released--it grossed $32 million in its original run--but the film has gained esteem over time.

Thanks to my Dad, I am the only person I know who can say I saw the film at the cinema in its first run (now expecting a deluge of mail from other equally blessed people). I could not tell you how many times I have seen it since. It is one of the two or three most influential films for me in terms of teachings and influence. It is difficult to express the reverence I hold for Ridley Scott; even Kingdom of Heaven had Eva Green.

But I've got a bad feeling about this.
