Sean Young hasn't had the easiest career in the world. One great role—as Rachel in Ridley Scott's “Blade Runner”—will stay with us forever, but her wider career never really took off the way you might have expected it to after starring in such a legendary film. Young's part in “Wall Street” was cut from substantial to pretty minor, and a horse-riding injury got her fired from Tim Burton's “Batman” and replaced with Kim Basinger; she was then cast in Warren Beatty's “Dick Tracy” before being fired from that too. The year after that—we're in 1991 now, almost ten years after “Blade Runner,” without having had another major role—she won two acting Razzies for the same movie, playing twins in “A Kiss Before Dying.” Since then, she hasn't had a lot of high profile work.

The wheels are slowly turning on a "Blade Runner" sequel, and while we wait to see what kind of shape the story will take, it appears one original cast member is throwing down some ultimatums about the whole endeavour. As you might recall, at the beginning of the year Sean Young said she had met with the folks behind the sequel, and was effectively told that none of the original cast were likely to come back. At the time, she noted that it "disappointment to the audience not to have Rachel in it" and seems those feelings have only grown in the months that followed.

Well, it's been a while since we've had a "Blade Runner" sequel rumor, but a new year is here, and it looks like the momentum is continuing whether we like it or not. To bring you back up to speed, the follow-up to Ridley Scott's seminal sci-fi movie got official last summer, when it was announced that original writer Hampton Fancher was developing a story with the director. And while there's any number of ways this can go, Scott did say that Harrison Ford may appear in the film, though he wouldn't be the focus. But to hear Sean Young, aka Rachael, tell it, the future might be down one more replicant.
