It appears the Blade Runner Sequel will shed some light on a mystery that has lasted over 30 years.

In the first theatrical release of Blade Runner the possibility that Deckard might be a replicant was left ambiguous. Later on Ridley Scott added a changed ending to the Director's and Final Cut versions of the movie and admitted he had always intended Deckard to be a replicant. This was apparently the cause of the fighting between Ford and Scott on set as Ford disagreed with the idea and always thought of Deckard as human. 

The movie version of Deckard's character seems to have been changed to a secondary one from the book named Phil Resch, who was teased as being a replicant programed to think he was a human Blade Runner.

Ford will be reprising his role as Deckard in the sequel so either he has an extended lifespan like Rachel was said to have in many of the versions, or he is the human the Deckard replicant model was based off of. No word yet on what role Ryan Gosling will play, but Scott did add a timeline. Either way, Scott is keeping mum on the subject. 

"I'm not going to tell you," Scott replied when asked. "You'll have to see the story. It'll all make sense."

"It was 2017, so coming back it'll be 2047, roughly. As young as you can play Ryan Gosling. He's 34, but he looks 27 when he’s doing his push-ups. So maybe 2050." 

Blade Runner 2 begins production in 2016.
