‘Blade Runner 2’ May Remove The Cloud Over Deckard’s Identity
The filming of “Blade Runner 2” will start, and speculations related to the plot of the new movie from Denis Villenueve are already flying high. There were no words from the production team of the movie till date, but while promoting his new film “Sicario” in the Toronto International Film Festival, Denis has given out some hints.
It was previously confirmed that the script of “Blade Runner 2” has already been finished. Ridley Scott has taken the back seat this time with restricting himself to just producing. The initial screenplay was developed by Scott and Hampton Fancher, the writer. It is rumored that the sequel will feature a female protagonist and Harrison Ford will be there as Rick Deckard.
This time, director Villenueve has mentioned that the movie will answer question in the first installment. According to Denis, “Blade Runner” is one of his favorite movies.
When asked about the plot of “Blade Runner 2,” Denis had to say, “Totally, 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.”
The lingering mystery surrounding the movie is about the identity of Deckard. Fans are eager to know if he is a human or similar to the character Rachel (Sean Young) who is just a replicant who thinks she is a human.
While Scott himself believes that Deckard is a replicant, actor Harrison Ford believes he is human. So the debate and mystery continues over the identity of Deckard in the sci-fi movie. The “Blade Runner 2” release date is still unconfirmed and shooting has still not commenced.
