Alcon has not revealed whether the new Blade Runner will be a sequel or prequel to the original, and all options would appear to be open.
Scott's forthcoming return to the Alien universe, Prometheus, is being touted as a film with "DNA" from the original movie rather than a direct prequel, an intriguing prospect which has created enormous buzz round the project.
Prometheus is set for a 2012 release.
It has Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, Patrick Wilson and others.
