Did You Know?
Ever since Blade Runner
(1982) hit theaters, there has been a divide among its fans about whether or not Harrison Ford
's Rick Deckard is a human or a replicant. It's a question that the film leaves up to the viewer, though director Ridley Scott
, Ford, and everyone else has chimed in with their own thoughts on the subject. With the sequel, there will certainly be more fuel on the fire of Deckard's true identity. Denis Villeneuve
did go on to say that the mystery will be something they address in the film and that re-contextualizing the original film with any answers they present in the sequel is a concern of his: "The thing I must say is that I love mystery. I love shadows. I love doubts. I would just want to say to the fans that we will take care of that mystery. I will take care of it." See more
