"The Blade Runner" was only written by a former doctor and there was a fine description about medical treatment and it was excellent as a novel but it was not accepted in general because the description was descriptive and it was not forgotten It was a work like a matter of time ". But, fortunately, the authorWilliam S. BurroughsI was caught in the eye. Burroughs,WikipediaAccording to the person saying "There was nothing to do with episodes somewhat, such as shooting a William Tell and erroneously shooting a wife, being shaken by a homosexual male and packing a little finger," but at that time it was a European Returning to New York from New York, I was at the turning point of my life as a writer who is reappearing as I just broke off my relationship with heroin.

Burroughs was "talking about movies", but what was done is not like a screenplay of a movie but a style like a middle story, as well as other works by Burroughs, it is spelled out in highly mysterious sentences It was. Mildness and roughness were added to the original, and the alteration ranged to "the barely visible relationship with the original" and an explanation of how the world devastated was made in the first half of the work It is focused on, and the plot is visible after I came in the middle. Also, the main character Billy is different from the original "passionateQueer"In the first appearance scene, the place where sexual intercourse with partner 's man was drawn.

This work I was unsuitable to the movies in a number of respects, among other things, ending became the two there was a point is a large wall. Burroughs seemed to intend to flow ending alternately or to flow two endings at the same time.

The assistant Grauhor also wrote in July 1977 that no work was showing interest from anyone in view of the above, and eventually the nurse puts his hands in again, finally called a novel rather than a movie It will be published in shape. At that time, despite having no plans to make it into a movie, in order to distinguish it from "The Blade Runner", "Blade Runner: A Movie (Movie: Blade Runner) "Was named. .

Then "movie: Blade Runner" is an actor and a screenwriterHampton FuncherIt is stored in the bookcase of.

Burroughs accepts the offer from Director Scott asking to "borrow the title of the novel". As a result, both the nurse's "The Blade Runner" and the movie unrelated to Burroughs's "Movie: Blade Runner" are named "Blade Runner" and will be released on June 25, 1982 It was.

There is no explanation as to what the blade runner is in the movie, and in this regard, Fancher said "Although" explanation "is a kind of trouble in the screenplay of the movie, I do not want to" explain "in the process I am doing it. " Nurse passed away in 1992 and Burroughs died in 1997 and the two bladers' Blade Runner 'never caught up in the eyes of many people, but without the work of the two, the masterpiece' Blade Runner "was released as a separate title, there is a possibility that it did not hit like now.
