Blade Runner 2
Ryan Gosling has confirmed that he will star in the upcoming sci-fi sequel Blade Runner 2, being directed by Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Prisoners) and shot by award-winning cinematographer Roger Deakins (Skyfall, Unbroken).
Ridley Scott, who directed the iconic 1982 neo-noir sci-fi thriller, is on board to executive produce for Alcon Entertainment. Written by Hampton Fancher (Blade Runner) and Michael Green (Prometheus 2), the sequel will take place several decades after the original film.
It’s still unknown if the second movie will be based on author K.W. Jeter’s 1995 science fiction novel Blade Runner 2: The Edge of Human. The book picks up the story of “blade runner” Rick Deckard on the trail of a replicant, not knowing that it may be the most elusive and dangerous android of all.
