There are murmors that the iconic universe of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner will once again be inhabited by the original Rick Deckard. Would Ford's involvement be a boon or a bane for the project?
A reboot or prequel might have felt ill-advised, but a sequel with Ford ostensibly reprising his role as Rick Deckard is a move that feels almost inevitably disappointing and terrible. Like there are maybe a few ways that can be done right, and so very many that will inflict pain on us all.
Certainly close to the truth. It's hard to imagine a collaboration like that meeting even the most basic of our collective expectations. At the very least, we can hope Scott stays away from a drastic de-agifying of the potential star player.
(For the despondent fan, here is the compulsory denial)
