Warner Home Video is releasing Blade Runner: The ACTUAL Director’s Cut, We Really Mean It This Time. Everyone knows the story of how Ridley Scott didn’t get to make the film he wanted with the original version of Blade Runner, because he ran over budget and the money guys took over and gave it a crappy voiceover and happy ending. That’s where the first Blade Runner: Director’s Cut came in.
What I never knew was that Scott wasn’t completely happy with that version either, claiming that he was rushed and unable to give it the attention it deserved. Anyway, the For Real Director’s Cut will be released in theaters in 2007, the 25th anniversary of the film. A special edition DVD will follow with all the versions of the movie and other bonus material.
LucasFilm, you need to be taking notes.
