The internet and social media are abuzz today with the confirmation of news that Harrison Ford will be returning in Blade Runner 2 as Rick Deckard, the protagonist from Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi classic, possibly answering the question once and for all fo whether Deckard is a replicant or not.

Reactions have been mixed with some fans eager for the sequel and excited to see Ford reprise his role while others are less enthusiastic for yet another sequel from Hollywood.

While little is known about the plot, we do know that Denis Villeneuve has replaced original director Ridley Scott, who is now serving as an Executive Producer on the untitled Blade Runner project. Alcon Entertainment announced that Villeneuve, director of the crime/mystery dramas Prisoners, Enemy, and Polytechnique, is helming the Blade Runner sequel, set several decades after Scott’s adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s 1968 sci-fi novel, Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?, in a press release. Co-writer of the 1982 predecessor, Hampton Fancher, and Michael Green (who is also penning Ridley Scott’s upcoming Prometheus sequel), are writing the screenplay for the sequel that may or may not be based off of friend to Philip K. Dick K.W. Jeter’s authorised Blade Runner sequels.

“We are honored that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve, who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on ‘Prisoners,'” Alcon co-founders and producers of the sequel Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said in a statement. “Hampton and Michael, with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most universally celebrated films of all time, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with this amazing, creative team.” With his lackluster performances from the past few years, many are voicing their less-than-enthusiastic opinions about Ford’s return to Blade Runner, while others are claiming that his acting style is perfect for the dystopian, futuristic setting and atmosphere of Blade Runner.

Production is expected to begin on the Blade Runner sequel as soon as the summer of 2016. Stay tuned for more updates!
