Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner was written by Paul M. Sammon, and published in 1996.

Future Noir chronicles the making of the classic science fiction film Blade Runner.

The making of Blade Runner was a seven-year odyssey that would test the stamina and the imagination of writers, producers, special effects wizards, and the most innovative art directors and set designers in the industry.

Future Noir is an in-depth look at the ever-shifting interface between commerce and the art that is modern Hollywood. It has been described as an intense, intimate, anything-but-glamorous inside account of how the work of Science Fiction's most uncompromising author was transformed into a critical sensation, a commercial success, and a cult classic.
