Harrison Ford Loves Sequels and I Have New Roles For Him

Harrison Ford is reprising his role as Deckard later this year when Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters. Aside from a ton of money that he likely made, what possessed Ford to return for the sequel?

Ford explained during a Facebook Q&A:

“The character [Rick Deckard] is woven into the story in a way that intrigued me. There’s a very strong emotional context. The relationship between the character Deckard – that I play – and other characters is fascinating. I think it’s interesting to develop a character after a period of time – to revisit a character… I think it’s fascinating that the original film postulated a technology, which, in many ways, we’ve surpassed, and, in other ways, we’re not quite there. And this film takes into account the 30 years that have passed; it references technologies that actually are in place now, and also – to me, which is a little bit more interesting – acknowledges and deals with some of the ethical considerations that technology presents us with.”

I read that as, “I get to work with Ryan Gosling and be around cool gadgets.” Harrison Ford is so much smarter than me.

Since Ford loves doing sequels, I’ve decided that we need sequels to the following Harrison Ford movies:

*Air Force One: What happened next to President Marshall? Did he ever fly again? If not, how did he travel? Did he fire his entire staff? Who did he get to replace Major Caldwell? Alternate sequel: Marshall is fed up with the current political climate and battles Donald Trump to the death on a plane.

*Witness: Samuel is all grown up now, but he’s turned bad after the trauma he went through as a child. He’s now a criminal mastermind and only John Book can stop him.

*The Fugitive: I know we got U.S. Marshals, but we need a true sequel that features Ford as well. Add in Wesley Snipes and Robert Downey Jr. and who cares about the plot, just make movie magic.

*Hollywood Homicide: I don’t have a good plot. I just want this movie made to confirm that Josh Harnett is still alive.
