Ridley Scott Confirms 'BLADE RUNNER 2' Is A Sequel And Protagonist Will Be Female

Another interview, Ridley Scott has the director confirms that Blade Runner 2 is indeed a sequel. He also reveals to TheDailyBeast that the film's protagonist will be female, ending previous rumblings that Deckard (Harrison Ford's character) would be returning. It's the first real detail we've learned about the sequel and that it seemingly won't be just a continuation/rehashing of the original film. Considering how interesting the three female replicant characters were in the original film it's not hard to see why developing a new one could help bring in new audiences.

  “Funny enough, I started my first meetings on the ‘Blade Runner’ sequel last week,”...He continued: “We have a very good take on it. And we’ll definitely be featuring a female protagonist.”
