"Indiana Jones" star Harrison Ford is set to appear in the "Blade Runner" sequel to be directed by Ridley Scott.

The 69-year-old actor is wanted by Scott to make a cameo appearance in the follow up to the 1982 sci-fi movie and the director believes Ford would be an amusing addition to the forthcoming film.

"I don't think it'll be Harrison (starring). But I've got to have him in it somewhere. That'd be amusing," Scott said. The helmer has lined up the original "Blade Runner" screenwriter Hampton Fancher to pen the script for the forthcoming film, which will focus on a female protagonist.

"I've started my first meetings on the 'Blade Runner' sequel. We have a very good take on it. And we will definitely be featuring a female protagonist," he added. Ford starred as the titular character, Rick Deckard, in the original motion picture, which also starred Daryl Hannah, Rutger Hauer and Sean Young.
