BLADE RUNNER 2049 Writer Reveals The Sequel's Darker Original Ending - Major SPOILERS Ahead

BLADE RUNNER 2049 Writer Reveals The Sequel's Darker Original Ending - Major <font color=red>SPOILERS</font> Ahead

If you haven't seen Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049 yet then read no further, as the sequel's co-writer discusses the original ending, and how a potential follow-up could play out. More past the jump.

At the conclusion of Blade Runner 2049, Ryan Gosling's K, a.k.a. Joe, risks and ultimately gives his life to save Deckard (Harisson Ford) and finally introduce him to his daughter. The film leaves us with K bleeding out in the snow, content that he did something worthwhile in his final moments.

It's a bittersweet ending, but during an interview with The LA Times, original Blade Runner writer and 2049 co-writer Hampton Fancher reveals that the final act of his original script was a whole lot darker while discussing it with the movie's other scribe, Michael Green.


"In my script, Deckard died at the end, but you [Green] have him live. The first time Ridley and I ever considered doing a second ‘Blade Runner,’ in 1986 or whatever it was, I came up with an idea about Deckard and his next job — and it’s kind of horrifying what happens in my little fantasy. Now that Deckard lives, that idea is back in my head. But I’m not going to tell you what it is."

Blade Runner 2049's disappointing performance at the box office means a sequel seems unlikely, so we may never get to find out what Fancher and co. have in store for Deckard. Still, many feel this is for the the best, as the follow-up to Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic serves as the perfect conclusion to the character's story.
