Good news for sci-fi fans: The sequel to Blade Runner is moving ahead, with Harrison Ford attached. Denis Villeneuve, who directed Prisoners with Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal, will direct the follow-up to Ridley Scott’s 1982 film.

The Blade Runner redux takes place decades after the original movie, and Ford will, of course, play Rick Deckard. In a December interview, Scott said that Ford called the sequel “the best thing he’s ever read.” So was Deckard really a replicant? Maybe we’ll finally find out.
