Quote Of The Week

Talking about the sequel to Blade Runner in Metro , Ridley Scott seems to have finally settled an argument that’s been raging for over 30 years… "It’s not a rumour – it’s happening. With Harrison Ford? I don’t know yet. Is he too old? Well, he was a Nexus-6 so we don’t know how long he can live [laughs]. And that’s all I’m going to say at this stage."
