We reported yesterday that Harrison Ford was rumored to be in talks to reprise his role of Rick Deckard in the upcoming "Blade Runner" film. Alcon Entertainment, producer and financier of the new film is denying these reports.

Andrew Kosove, the head in charge of Alcon, along with Broderick Johnson, said, "It is absolutely patently false that there has been any discussion about Harrison Ford being in Blade Runner. 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."

He went on to say that, "What Ridley does in Prometheus is a good template for what we're trying to do. He created something that has some association to the original Alien, but lives on its own as a standalone movie."
