WTF Moment Of The Day ¦ 'Blade Runner' Sequel Confirmed

(AICN) This is big news for those of us who worship at the altar of BLADE RUNNER. Ridley Scott confirmed with the Wall Street Journal Blog, Speakeasy, that he will, indeed, be helming the sequel to BLADE
RUNNER.

He told the blog, “I think I’m close to finding a writer that might be able to help me deliver. We’re quite a long way in, actually.”

Scott also stated that it's looking like Deckard will not make an appearance in the film. Will we finally know decisively whether or not Deckard is a replicant? Will any of the questions be answered?

Scott isn't saying, but he did offer this bit about the first film - "Even though people think it’s a cool Philip Marlowe film with Deckard played by Harrison Ford, the film is very much about humanity.”

What this means for the sequel is unclear, but certainly he'll explore what makes us human in comparison to the replicants in the new film.
