NoobMember6 XPOct-20-2012 6:59 AMRidley Scott has never indicated that the existing "Blade Runner" books would be used to do "Blade Runner 2" but I always thought the 1995 book titled "Blade Runner 2: The Edge of Human" would be a good starting point. The rear dust cover of this book includes a photo of author K. W. Jeter with Phlip K Dick in Dick's office while hinting at a pre-death collaboration. Could this cover story be just a marketing ploy for the book? (maybe) I have just re-read BR2 book and have published information in two sections (spoilers and non-spoilers) which you can read here: [url=http://www3.sympatico.ca/n.rieck/links/blade_runner.html#br2eoh]http://www3.sympatico.ca/n.rieck/links/blade_runner.html#br2eoh[/url] Enjoy!

2KAdmin4319 XPOct-20-2012 8:43 AMThank you for posting this neilrieck! I agree with you this might be be what the movie will be loosely based on because the main character in this book is a female, and Ridley does say the sequel will feature a main female protagonist. I stated the thought it may be based on this novel here: [url=http://www.bladerunner2-movie.com/community/forums/topic/31]SPECULATION: Peter Weyland Showing Up In BLADE RUNNER 2?[/url]

NoobMember6 XPOct-23-2012 5:45 AMI didn't know Ridley said the main character would be female. But this makes sense because Ridley's movies usually feature strong females (Alien and Thelma & Louise first spring to mind; then secondary female characters in Gladiator and Blade Runner pop up)

And we’ll definitely be featuring a female protagonist"~Ridley Scott.

but the story is mostly inspired by Do Androids dream of electric sheep
