Tony, Ridley and Luke Scott announced that a new division of Ridley's RSA films would be producing a prequel webseries to the cult fave Blade Runner.

That alone would be remarkable news and worth the 'Bot's notice... however, it gets more interesting.

They will be writing the series(titled "Purefold") by culling input from Friendfeed and releasing it under a Creative Commons license.

In a nutshell, they will be making a professionally produced series of Blade Runner fanfilms--- and allowing those fans to remix, mashup and re-release their own versions.

Read that paragraph again. Yeah... that's big.

Since they don't have the rights to Mr. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, they will not be using any characters from Blade Runner, but they will be setting this in that film's universe.... but in a bit more of a 'Day After Tomorrow' way.
