Characters from Blade Runner
Set 30 years after the events in the original, Blade Runner 2049 is the sequel to the 1982 Ridley Scott directed film Blade Runner.
The original film was based on a short story by Philip K. Dick called “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” first published in 1968. The sequel however isn’t based on a book but on a script by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green.
Fancher along with David Peoples wrote the script for the original adaptation and the characters created by Philip K. Dick appear in 2049.
