"I truly admire Ridley as a man and as a director, and I would be very happy to engage again with him in the further telling of this story."

Ford played Rick Deckard in the 1982 sci-fi thriller, which was based on short story Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?

Last year it was revealed Scott was keen to develop a sequel with a female protagonist, but there was no indication as to whether Ford would be involved in the project.
