This current “Final Cut” version, Scott said, comes closest to what the film could have been and, in his mind, should have been.
“It’s quite a thing to come back to this film now, after all this time, after a quarter of a century,” said Scott, whose résumé includes “Thelma & Louise,” “Gladiator” and “Black Hawk Down.”
“This is a film that, in many ways, has echoed throughout popular culture in a very special way.”
The film also seems to have been a career landmark for just about everyone involved.
“I was never on another movie set quite like that one,” said Daryl Hannah, who portrayed the sexualized android called Pris. “I was very young, and every day it felt the way you fantasize that making a movie would be — like you’re stepping into another world.”
