Ridley Scott’s ‘Blade Runner’ inspired by Brit town’s filth

November 14th, 2007 - 1:49 am ICT by admin  
The 1982 film starring Harrison Ford is regarded as a sci-fi classic.

Scott, who went to art school in Hartlepool reveals that he imagined what Los Angeles would look in 2019 by using his memory of the belching steel plants and chemical works in the Brit city.

However, Hartlepool Council says the town has undergone a dramatic change since Scott’s days there and no longer looks the same.

“We’re very proud of it,” the Mirror quoted a spokesman, as saying.

Scott personally supervised a digitally restored Blade Runner and approved the Final Cut, which is to be finally released theatrically in Los Angeles and New York on 5 October 2007.

An elaborate DVD release is also planned for 18 December 2007.

Scott has previously said that he regards Blade Runner as his “most complete and personal film.” (ANI)
