As important who is in front of the camera is who is behind it...
Denis Villeneuve (Sicario) will be directing.
Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original screenplay) along with Mike Green have written the screenplay based on an idea by Fancher and Scott.
While I have heard some online grumblings about Ridley Scott not directing it...I am not of the same mind. Owning and watching every single version of Blade Runner that has been released, I can only speak for myself when I say that the original theatrical version is by far the best. The elements that Scott derided about the original are what helped make it such a stunning masterpiece for me.
