Harrison Ford and the filmmakers behind the upcoming Blade Runner movie are still debating the age-old “replicant” question, and Harrison’s take on it has us intrigued.

In the original Blade Runner, released in 1982, Harrison played Rick Deckard, a blade runner who is sent to execute four rogue human-like androids (replicants).

Since then, fans have wondered whether or not Rick himself might also be an android who only appears to be human.

We’re itching to find out too, TBH!

In the newest version of the story, Blade Runner 2049, Ryan Gosling stars alongside Harrison (reprising his original role as Rick), and that has kick-started the debate all over again.

Is Rick a replicant or isn’t he? Producer Ridley Scott insists that Rick is a replicant, while Harrison and co-screenwriter Hampton Fancher disagree.

Harrison has given a diplomatic, if slightly maddening, response.

Ryan Gosling is also worth the price of admission, in our humble opinions, but we digress.

Here’s a theory: If Rick is really a replicant, could Ryan’s character be the one to expose him? Also, side note, does that mean replicants age?! So many questions!

Even if the long-running debate doesn’t end with this new film, at the very least we might get some hints.

Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters on October 6th, 2017.
