Hampton Fancher (born July 18, 1938, in Los Angeles, California), was an actor who transitioned into being a producer and screenwriter in the late 1970s. He is best known for writing the first screenplay of Blade Runner.


After convincing Philip K. Dick to option his novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Fancher wrote a screenplay and got the support of producer Michael Deeley. This made Fancher the executive producer which led to disagreements with the director Ridley Scott and David Peoples being brought in to continue reworking the script.

Fancher wrote two films afterward, The Mighty Quinn (1989) starring Denzel Washington and The Minus Man (1999), which he also directed, starring Owen Wilson.

Francher returned to the world of Blade Runner with three films: 2036: Nexus Dawn (short, with Michael Green) (2017), 2048: Nowhere To Run (short, with Michael Green) (2017) and Blade Runner 2049.
