Details have slowly started trickling out about Ridley Scott's new Blade Runner sequel, and now it seems the sequel might have an even closer tie to the first film than we thought: Could Harrison Ford come back for a cameo as the iconic Replicant hunter Deckard?

Scott has already said the sequel will focus on a new, female protagonist—but that doesn't mean Deckard can't come back in some capacity.

In an interview with The Independent, Scott was asked about the prospect of Ford popping up in the sequel, and he let slip that he's already been thinking about it.

"I don't think it'll be Harry [starring]," Scott said. "But I've got to have him in it somewhere. That'd be amusing."

The sequel is supposedly set "many years" after the alt-2019 setting of the first film, so how could Deckard fit into the sequel? We have no idea, but we can't wait to find out.

What do you think? Would you like to see Deckard get one more nod on the big screen?
