Blade Runner: The Final Cut

If George Lucas and Steven Spielberg can update and tweak their past masterworks (to varying degrees), it’s fair to give outspoken director Ridley Scott a shot.

Revisiting his masterpiece, Blade Runner, for the third time in 25 years Scott is planning to achieve what Lucas and Spielberg couldn’t quite do: to rip the flick apart and ditch any fluff for his original vision. Jar-Jar Binks and friends this is not.

Dropping the brick-over-head voice over of android annihilator Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) and completely changing the pseudo-sappy ending Blade Runner will take on its new (and hopefully final) life in New York and Los Angeles theaters this week with a special-edition DVD release to follow.

Check out the trailer after the jump.
