“I have to be careful what I say,” Scott said at first, before adding, “It was f**king way too long. F**k me! And most of that script’s mine,” Scott told Vulture.
Hampton Fancher, who wrote the original “Blade Runner” with David Peoples, received the screenplay credit for the sequel along with Michael Green.
“I sit with writers for an inordinate amount of time and I will not take credit, because it means I’ve got to sit there with a tape recorder while we talk.
“I can’t do that to a good writer. But I have to, because to prove I’m part of the actual process, I have to then have an endless amount (of proof), and I can’t be bothered. But the big idea comes from Blade Runner,” said Scott.
