  So, I guess Dekkard was not a Replicant.

With a "new Bladerunner" unearthing a "long buried secret" I would not be too sure this idea is not in the mix, or is the mix!

If Ridley Scott's 2014 interview about the subject holds up, I suspect the needle may be leaning toward "In"...

Even less interest in this than in ALIEN: COVENANT!

I rather strongly believe that BLADE RUNNER should remain a stand-alone film. That's a factor in what has made it an iconic film, I think--it's a one-shot that really hit a nerve with people, despite its initial failure. A nostalgia-milking sequel is probably just gonna dilute that, and give closure to Deckard and his story that may ruin the ambiguity of the first film.

Speaking of which, I certainly won't be surprised if the "Deckard as a Replicant" idea is in this film, given Ridley Scott's involvement. I don't necessarily come down on that side of the argument, but I do like the fact that some of the many versions of BLADE RUNNER ask the question, while leaving the answer ambiguous. That sort of paranoia and questioning of one's identity seem rather Phillip K. Dick-esque, to me, but I'd rather there not be a definitive answer to that question. Scott has made his own thoughts clear, yes, but the question has never been answered onscreen...and now it might be. Sigh.

I was surprised to learn that Harrison Ford was doing this. He's been pretty vocal about not liking the original movie (though he's "softened" his tone a bit in latter years).

Anyways, if Deckard is in it he can't really be a replicant, can he, because of their limited life span? Unless they to the typical sequel move and turn everything we learned about replicants upside down.

Harrison Ford returning to the last of his three most iconic film roles, more than 30 years after the original?

What could possibly go wrong...?

I'm gonna say this right now--if BLADE RUNNER had needed a sequel, we would have gotten one within a reasonable amount of time after its release. 

Given the deluge of counterfeit and decades-late, nostalgia-milking sequels/prequels/reboots (STAR WARS, DIE HARD, INDIANA JONES, TERMINATOR, ALIEN, etc., etc., etc.), I think there needs to be some sort of statute of limitations for sequels. Maybe ten years after the original, tops.

I agree with most of the forum members' opinions in that I don't feel Blade Runner needs a sequel or continuation in any way.

Having said that, I have to say the trailer does look nice...
