'Blade Runner 2' Will Not Reveal Whether Deckard is a Replicant
1982's Blade Runner is regarded as one of the best and most thoughtful sci-fi masterpieces of all time, and to this day its biggest mystery has not be solved.
While director Ridley Scott claims that Deckard is a replicant, Harrison Ford has been adamant in the past that he is a human. With the sequel, Blade Runner 2049, it looks like no answer is going to be provided.
Director Denis Villeneuve was quoted in a recent interview with Allocine as such: "The filmmaker says it was very important to him not to break the tension of the mystery that lingers around Scott’s original movie, or solve all its riddles. You might think that because Nexus 6 replicants only have a four-year lifespan, that the return of Ford in “Blade Runner 2049” as Deckard answers the question regarding his humanity, but Villeneuve says “not necessarily.” So, get ready for those internet debates to start raging once again."
The film is out October 6, 2017.
