Blade Runner 2049: What role for Harrison Ford (Rick Deckard)?
As you know, Rick Deckard, incarnated by Harrison Ford, will make his big comeback in Blade Runner 2049. But what could be his role in the film?
Fans of futuristic universes or travels in space will be served! Since 2017, with the coming to movie Blade Runner 2049, Alien: Covenant or Star Wars: The Last Jedi, clearly puts science fiction honored . Not to mention that these three films continue and enrich the history of extremely popular franchises and are now part of the cinema classics! But if Star Wars: The Last Jedi has much to be exciting, and if Alien: Covenant promises to give us some chills, Blade Runner in 2049 is still one of the feature films that intrigue us perhaps more. Already because he landed more than thirty years after the first Blade Runner . Then, because one really does not know much about his plot. Hardly can it be said that Officer K, incarnated by Ryan Gosling, will represent the main character of the film and will (apparently) be in pursuit of Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), the hero of the original Blade Runner. And seen the trailer of Blade Runner 2049, it seems that the last decades were not very lenient with Deckard. So, in melty, one wonders: what could ultimately be the role of Harrison Ford in Blade Runner in 2049 ?
The end of Blade Runner left us with a question to which we have yet never got a response: Deckard a Replicant is it? If for Ridley Scott, director of the film, it is obvious that the problem does not even arise and that, yes, his hero is indeed an android, this has never been proved. Or Denis Villeneuve, who heads the Blade Runner in 2049 , we did indeed assured he would explore the matter and that we offer – FINALLY – a satisfactory answer. As a result, it turns out that it will reveal to us that Deckard is indeed a Replicant, a Replicant of another kind and capable of functioning for decades. If that is the case, then we can imagine that the officer K, which is also a Blade Runner, is actually looking for Deckard to bring it to the authorities . Or to the ” disconnect ” since that is the mission of the Blade Runners.
But we can also formulate another hypothesis, a little more gratifying for the character of Harrison Ford. For who tells us that K is not looking for Deckard to ask him for advice? It could indeed that the same events that occurred in Blade Runner breed thirty years later. And in this case, the K officer could simply for the purposes of its investigation, attempt to contact Deckard to solve the problem . After all, the story of Blade Runner in 2049 does not tell us much about the famous secret that K discovers within its business. Anyway, if K is the main character of the film, then we can already make a reason for it: Deckard may well have only a secondary role. Maybe he will be a little Luke Skywalker of Star Wars: The Force Alarm , namely a figure somewhat mythical need to find. Unless of course he takes the role of Han Solo in the same film and serves as a mentor to Officer K. However, this one looks already well trained so we do not see what Rick Deckard could teach him. Anyway, we hope that Blade Runner 2049, which will retain the same tone as the original movie , beautiful way mark the return of Deckard! In your opinion, what will be the role of Harrison Ford?
