Ridley Scott Says New ?Blade Runner? Project Is ?Likely to Be a Sequel?

We know that Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros. are working [1] with Ridley Scott to make another film [2] set in the Blade Runner world, though whether the new film might be sequel, prequel or spin-off we haven't known. Hell, we really don't know anything about the movie, including the key question: "why?" (Answer to that is likely to be "because we can.")

Now Ridley Scott says that the Blade Runner project is "likely to be a sequel."

That quote above is reported by the Wall Street Journal [3], to which Scott also said,
I think I?m close to finding a writer that might be able to help me deliver. We?re quite a long way in, actually.
So... no script yet. I don't know what "we're quite a long way in" means, given that there isn't even a writer hired, but that's why he's Ridley Scott and I'm not.

That means that this could end up not being the next film that Scott makes after his Alien prequel Prometheus. Last time [4] we heard anything from Andrew Kosove from Alcon, he said that this film wasn't likely to go into production before 2013, meaning this is probably a 2014 release at the earliest.

And while I'm dubious about this project, I was also concerned about the idea of an Alien prequel, and Prometheus has turned out to be a lot more promising that I would have guessed at the outset. It still might not be a good movie in the end, but Scott and his many conspirators have swayed me there, so it could happen again with Blade Runner.

Oh, and with respect to Harrison Ford's character Rick Deckard, are we likely to see him in the new film? "No, not really," says Scott.

By 1995, Ssaul williams had become a open mic poet and, in 1996, he won the title of Nuyorican Poets Cafe's Grand Slam Champion. The documentary film SlamNation follows Williams and the other members of the 1996 Nuyorican Poets Slam team (Beau Sia, Mums da Schemer and Jessica Care Moore) as they compete in the 1996 National Poetry Slam held in Portland, Oregon. The following year, Williams landed the lead role in the 1998 feature film Slam. Williams served as both a writer and actor on the film, which would win both the Sundance Festival Grand Jury Prize and the Cannes Camera D'Or (Golden Camera) and serve to introduce Williams to international audiences. Williams was at this time breaking into music. He had performed with such artists as Nas, The Fugees, Christian Alvarez, Blackalicious, Erykah Badu, KRS-One, Zack De La Rocha, De La Soul, and DJ Krust, as well as poets Allen Ginsberg and Sonia Sanchez. After releasing a string of EPs, in 2001 he released the LP Amethyst Rock Star with producer Rick Rubin and in September 2004 his self-titled album to much acclaim. He played several shows supporting Nine Inch Nails on their European tour in summer 2005, and has also supported The Mars Volta. Williams was also invited to the Lollapalooza music festival in Summer 2005. The Chicago stage allowed Williams to attract a wider audience. He also appeared on NIN's album Year Zero, and supported the group on their 2006 North American tour. On the tour Williams announced that Trent Reznor would co-produce his next album.  This collaboration resulted in 2007's The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust!. This album was available only at the website until a physical CD of the album was issued. The physical release included new tracks and extended album artwork.  The first 100,000 customers on the website had the option to download a free lower-quality audio version of the album. The other option was for users to pay $5 to support the artist directly and be given the choice of downloading the higher-quality MP3 version or the lossless FLAC version. The material has been produced by Trent Reznor and mixed by Alan Moulder. It was Reznor who said that, after his own recent dealings with record labels, they should release it independently and directly As a writer, Williams has been published in The New York Times, Esquire, Bomb Magazine and African Voices, as well as having released four collections of poetry. As a poet and musician, Williams has toured and lectured across the world, appearing at many universities and colleges. In his interview in the book, Words in Your Face: A Guided Tour Through Twenty Years of the New York City Poetry Slam, Williams explained why he creates within so many genres, saying:

It's not that I balance [those arts] out, all the different arts balance me out. So, that there is a certain type of emotion that is more easily accessible through music than poetry... Some things are meant to be written, some are meant to be sung, some things are meant to be hummed, some things are made to be yelled, and so that's just how life works

Williams is a vocal critic of the War on Terrorism and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan;  among his better-known works are the anti-war anthems "Not In My Name" and "Act III Scene 2 (Shakespeare)". In early 2008, a Nike Sparq Training commercial featured Williams' song "List of Demands (Reparations)". In a November 2008 interview with, Williams talked about his forthcoming projects: ...but there's one [album] that I'm waist-deep into. I'm aiming to finish it up next month. Trent wants to work on a sequel for Niggy that I think would be cool and I also have an album and new songs demoed at home that I'm ready to go into the studio and lay down.It’s a complete reflection of how I feel in this country; it's a very transformative time

Apple seeds iOS 5.0.1 beta 2 to developers, beta 1 was so yesterday...

If you downloaded yesterdays iOS 5 beta you might want to check that iPhone / iPad / iPod touch for an OTA update. No word on what's new in 9A404 -- a mere two builds from yesterdays 9A402 -- but the updated build should still bring solace to those suffering from battery-drain issues. We're getting errors trying to download the developer notes, but we'll update if we find anything new or noteworthy.

[Thanks, Haseeb]

In-flight WiFi coming to 300 United and Continental aircraft beginning in mid-2012, entire fleet covered by 2015

Planning to fly on United or Continental at any point over the next few years? Then it looks like your odds of having in-flight WiFi will be getting increasingly better. United Continental Holdings announced today that it's signed an agreement with Panasonic Avionics Corporation to bring satellite-based WiFi connectivity to more than 300 of its aircraft beginning in mid-2012. Those aircraft will include Airbus 319 and 320 and Boeing 747, 757, 767, 777 and 787, and the company says it expects its entire mainline fleet to be covered by 2015. No specific word on any additional content or services that will come with it (or a cost, for that matter), but the company promises that the system will "enable wireless streaming of video content."
