Harrison Ford Reprising ‘Blade Runner’ Role in Sequel


Filmmakers behind the upcoming Blade Runner sequel are thrilled after original star Harrison Ford agreed to reprise his role as bounty hunter Rick Deckard in the new movie.

Ford starred in the original 1982 adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s sci-fi novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, and moviemakers recently reached out to him and asked him to join their planned sequel.

Ridley Scott, who directed the first film, is producing the follow-up and he has now revealed Ford is onboard.

He tells Variety, “We (screenwriter Hampton Fancher and I) talked at length about what it (the sequel) could be, and came up with a pretty strong three-act storyline, and it all makes sense in terms of how it relates to the first one. Harrison is very much part of this one, but really it’s about finding him; he comes in in the third act.”

Are you excited to learn about Ford’s return to the series?
