Harrison Ford looks set to appear in the 'Blade Runner' sequel.

The 69-year-old star - who is well known for his titular role in 'Indiana Jones' and portrayal of Han Solo in the original 'Star Wars' trilogy - is wanted by director Sir Ridley Scott to make a cameo appearance in the follow up to the 1982 sci-fi movie.

Harrison starred as the titular character, Rick Deckard, in the original motion picture - which featured Daryl Hannah, Rutger Hauer and Sean Young - and the filmmaker believes the legendary actor would be an ''amusing'' addition to the sequel.

Ridley told the Independent newspaper: ''I don't think it'll be Harrison [starring]. But I've got to have him in it somewhere. That'd be amusing.''

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.

Ridley recently said: ''I've started my first meetings on the 'Blade Runner' sequel. We have a very good take on it. And we'll definitely be featuring a female protagonist.''

Alcon Entertainment producers Andrew Kosovoe and Broderick Johnson confirmed the movie will be set in the future.

They said in a statement: ''It is a perfect opportunity to reunite Ridley with Hampton on this new project - one in fact inspired by their own personal collaboration [and] a classic of cinema if there ever was one.''
