Blade Runner sequel will “take care” of the mystery of Deckard’s identity

 

Ever since Blade Runner hit theaters in 1982, there has been a divide among its fans – is Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard a human or is he a replicant? It’s a question that the film leaves up to the viewer, though director Ridley Scott, Ford, and everyone else has chimed in with their own thoughts on the subject. With a sequel set to begin production next summer, there will certainly be more fuel on the fire of Deckard’s true identity.

 

CraveOnline caught up with director Denis Villeneuve (Sicario), who will helm the sequel, and asked him his thoughts on whether Deckard was a human or replicant, to which he replied: “Now that I am on the other side of the fence, I cannot answer.”

 

Villeneuve did go on to say that the mystery will be something they address in the film and that re-contextualizing the original film with any answers they present in the sequel is a concern of his.

 

“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 Blade Runner sequel is scheduled to start principal photography in summer of 2016. Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original) and Michael Green have written the original screenplay based on an idea by Fancher and Ridley Scott with the story taking place several decades after the conclusion of the 1982 original. Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Rick Deckard with Ryan Gosling previously said to be in talks for a role. Villeneuve will direct the film with frequent collaborator Roger Deakins working as director of photography.

When April’s The Age of Adaline came out, we weren’t just struck by Blake Lively’s beauty, but also by the actor who was the spitting image of a young Harrison Ford. Anthony Ingruber played the younger version of Ford’s character, and we knew from his YouTube videos that he was a huge Han Solo fan (who isn’t?), but we wondered what Ford himself thought of the guy. Wonder no more, because in this exclusive extra from the DVD (which comes out Tuesday, Sept. 8, while the digital download is available Aug. 25), Ford talks about working with Ingruber. Stay tuned for the really freaking cute picture of the two of them together, in which Ingruber tries to keep his cool.

Welcome! Harrison Ford has always been one of my favorite actors. He’s truly a legend! My favorite character is Han Solo but Indiana Jones is a very close second. I also really loved him in Air Force One, Regarding Henry, The Age of Adaline, and What Lies Beneath. He’s one of the best actors and seems like an amazing person as well.

 

I’ve just started this website for Mr. Ford and it’s going to take me probably years to get it complete considering the length of his career so please check back often to see what’s been added. And follow us on Twiter at @HarrisonOnline. I’m looking for Elite/Top affiliates for the site. Elites is mainly for Harrison’s many co-stars. Please fill out the form here to apply.

 

A special thank you to Kaci for her help getting some of the photoshoots and this great website theme.




He’s a spider, a lifesaver, and had his ear pierced at Claire’s Accessories

 

1. Alec Guinness could never remember his name

In Piers Paul Read’s biography of Ford’s Star Wars co-star, amongst general grouching about the film’s “rubbish dialogue”, it was revealed that Guinness had great difficulty remembering the then-unknown actor’s name. As he wrote to a friend: “I must off to studio and work with a dwarf (very sweet – and he has to wash in a bidet) and your fellow countrymen Mark Hamill and Tennyson (that can’t be right) Ford. Ellison (? – No!) – well, a rangy, languid young man who is probably intelligent and amusing. But Oh, God, God, they make me feel ninety – and treat me as if I was 106. Oh, Harrison Ford – ever heard of him?”

 

2. He had his ear pierced at Claire’s Accessories

Ford decided to pierce his ear at the age of 55, after lunching with his friend Jimmy Buffett and becoming jealous of the stud in his ear. He and his then-wife, ET screenwriter Melissa Mathison, promptly walked into a Los Angeles branch of Claire’s Accessories and had his ear pierced by a sales assistant named Tavora. According to Mathison, Ford “didn’t flinch, and when it was done, he said, ‘That didn’t hurt.'” He then left a note reading: “To Tavora. You made a hole in me. Harrison Ford.”

 

3. He was paid $10,000 to make Star Wars

This was actually a hefty raise from Harrison’s first film with George Lucas, 1973’s American Graffiti – he was paid $500 a week to play drag racer Bob Falfa. For The Empire Strikes Back his salary was $100,000, going up to $500,000 for Return of the Jedi. In 22008, he was paid £43.3 million to star in Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull.

 

4. He loves narrow-boats

In 2006, Ford caused a stir in the North Wales canal community when he pulled up to Chirk Marina in a narrow-boat, accompanied by his then-wife Calista Flockhart and their son. Making a stop on their way to Shropshire via the Union Canal, the family visited the Llangollen International Eisteddfod and – according to the BBC – Ford was later spotted buying “sugar and black bin bags” at the local Co-op.
