We will most certainly indulge a new look at Ridley Scott's sci-fi epic.

Guy Pearce appears in an extended "Prometheus" teaser as technology mogul Peter Weyland (hmm!), a key speaker at a technology convention known as TED 2023. TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is described as a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, and Weyland has a rather radical one: he intends to build the first convincingly humanoid robotic system.

UPDATE: Alcon Entertainment is denying the reports of Harrison Ford  in talks for a "Blade Runner" sequel.

"It is absolutely patently false that there has been any discussion about Harrison Ford being in 'Blade Runner,'" Andrew Kosove from Alcon told Deadline. "To be clear, what we are trying to do with Ridley now is go through the painstaking process of trying to break the back of the story, figure out the direction we're going to take the movie and find a writer to work on it. The casting of the movie could not be further from our minds at this moment."

When Alcon Entertainment's plans to craft a new "Blade Runner" prequel/sequel/Replicant were announced nearly a year ago, it sent sci-fi fans abuzz with concern about how they could possibly recreate the 1982 masterpiece's heady mix of cyberpunk noir. Now a key puzzle piece may be falling into place: Harrison Ford. Get More »
