Two important industries together

The first joint-venture between Warner Bros. and Columbia Pictures since 'Something's Gotta Give' (2003).

Yes or not?

Ever since 'Blade Runner' (1982) hit theaters, there has been a divide among its fans about whether or not Harrison Ford's Rick Deckard is a human or 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 the sequel, there will certainly be more fuel on the fire of Deckard's true identity. Denis 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."

Villeneuve's risk

Denis Villeneuve noted that he's fully aware of the immense pressure he's under, and how hardcore fans of the original view the prospect of a new film: "I know that every single fan will walk into the theater with a baseball bat. I'm aware of that and I respect that, and it's okay with me because it's art. Art is risk, and I have to take risks. It's gonna be the biggest risk of my life but I'm okay with that. For me it's very exciting... It's just so inspiring, I'm so inspired. I've been dreaming to do sci-fi since I was 10 years old, and I said 'no' to a lot of sequels. I couldn't say 'no' to 'Blade Runner 2049' (2017). I love it too much, so I said, 'Alright, I will do it and give everything I have to make it great.'"
