Is he? Isn’t he? This has been the question since the release of Blade Runner back in 1982 – is Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard himself one of the humanoid “replicants” that he is chasing down. In director Ridley Scott’s mind, Deckard was always a replicant — and he’s said so on several occasions — but now he says that in the forthcoming Blade Runner 2, the mystery will be thrown open once and for all. “Of course, he’s a bloody Replicant! He’s going to have to admit it. You’ll have to see the story. It’ll all make sense,” he said.
Though Scott has said he believes Deckard is a replicant — along with Darryl Hannah’s Pris, Brion James’s Leon, Joanna Cassidy’s Zhora and Rutger Hauer’s Roy Batty from the sci-fi classic — fans have long discussed (and likely argued) whether this is the case or not, the movie itself leaving the answer in more ambiguous territory.

 

Ryan Gosling will be starring alongside Harrison Ford in the new movie, and Scott says he had to convince the latter to take up the role again. “I got Harrison back. Because Harrison said, ‘Me’, and I said, ‘No, read this.’ And I think he said, ‘This is the best script I’ve ever had.’ We’ve been working on it for a couple of years.”

 

Following news that he plans to make four “Prometheus” movies in all, and whether he might do the same with Blade Runner, he added, “Listen: Everyone else is, so why not? I love to work. The French say, ‘Work to live’, and I live to work. I’m very lucky to have a job that I adore. All my kids do the same thing. Some of it’s trying, but it’s like being in professional sport. It’s so competitive (that) you better keep bouncing the ball. You can’t rest.”

 

And when will the new movie be set? “It was 2017, so coming back it’ll be 2047, roughly. As young as you can play Ryan Gosling. He’s 34, but he looks 27 when he’s doing his push-ups. So maybe 2050,” he added. Then asked whether Gosling would then inherit the potential franchise after the first sequel, he answered “Yeah, yeah.”

 

Blade Runner 2, to be helmed by Prisoners and Sicario director Denis Villeneuve, and produced by Scott, has no release date just yet.

BAFTA Los Angeles will bestow its achievement laurel on Harrison Ford at the Oct. 30 Britannia Awards, which are moving to cabler Pop this year after previously airing on BBC America.

 

Ford will receive the Albert R. Broccoli Britannia Award for Worldwide Contribution to Entertainment at the ceremony to be held at the Beverly Hilton.

 

“It is impossible to imagine the past 40 years of Hollywood history without Harrison Ford, and his performances are as iconic as the films themselves,” BAFTA Los Angeles chairman Kieran Breen said in a statement.

 

The ceremony, hosted by actor-comedian Jack Whitehall, will air Nov. 6 on Pop. The Britannia Awards had aired on BBC America in recent years but were carried by TV Guide Network, the predecessor of Pop, in 2010 and 2011.

 

Other Britannia honorees this year include Orlando Bloom, who will receive the Britannia Humanitarian Award, and Meryl Streep, who will receive the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film. Sam Mendes, James Corden, Amy Schumer and event production company Done + Dusted will also be recognized.

 

The Britannia Awards help kick off awards season for BAFTA. The org’s film awards are set for Feb. 14 in London and will continue to air on BBC America.

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.
