Scott Burns To Write Ridley Scott's New BLADE RUNNER?

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
While nobody is quite sure what Ridley Scott's new Blade Runner film will be just yet we may know who is writing it.

Sources tell Twitch that Scott Burns - writer of Contagion and The Bourne Ultimatum - has been identified as the top choice to write the picture by both Scott himself, his producers at Alcon and the project's backers at Warner Brothers and that all parties are now involved in active talks to make it happen.

While the nostalgic part of me would like to see the job go back to original screenwriter David Peoples - who hasn't had a screenplay produced since 1998 - Burns seems a solid choice as a high end, successful writer who also maintains a certain degree of intelligence to his work.
