The message accompanied a photo of Bautista holding an origami unicorn, the same one that Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard once used in Ridley Scott’s 1982 film, which is currently being developed for a sequel.

Bautista was last seen in Sam Mendes’ Skyfall follow up Spectre, starring Daniel Craig in his fourth film as James Bond.
