Not only will Ridley Scott's Blade Runner sequel feature a female protagonist, but it looks as thought Harrison Ford may actually appear in the film. SlashFilm reports that Scott has never ruled out the idea of Ford appearing, and has even revealed some new details during a recent interview with The Independent. In the interview Scott stated that even though negotiations have not begun, that he hopes Ford will appear in a supporting role.
Here is what he had to say:
“I don’t think it’ll be Harry [starring]. But I’ve got to have him in it somewhere. That’d be amusing.”
While this is not an official confirmation of Ford's involvement, it is great news for fans of the actors role from the first film. If Ford does sign on to star, it is not known what type of role he will have. It could be anything from a cameo, a supporting role or even a different character altogether. Ridley Scott will be directing The Counselor next, before likely starting on the Blade Runner sequel. Original screenwriter Hampton Fancher is set to develop the story.
