I seriously didn't think that we would see Harrison Ford back as Deckard in Ridley Scott's Blade Runner sequel. After the movie was announced last year and Scott signed on to direct it producer Andrew Kosove gave an interview in which he said,
In no way do I speak for Ridley Scott but if you're asking me will this movie have anything to do with Harrison Ford, the answer is no. This is a total reinvention and in my mind that means doing everything fresh, including casting.
That seemed to be a pretty definitive answer to Ford's involvement, but according to Twitch, the actor is actually in early talks to reprise his role in the movie! Maybe Kosove said all that just to throw us off, because if this news is true, they obviously want Ford back. They have just begun talking with the actor, and there's always the possibility that things wont work out, but I would absolutely love it if Ford agreed to do this sequel! I'd actually be more excited about that than a complete reinvention as previously believed.
What are your thoughts on Ford possibly coming back to be in the Blade Runner sequel?
