A sequel to the Ridley Scott classic BLADE RUNNER has been being talked about for a while now. The 1982 Harrison Ford starring film took place in a dystopian Los Angeles in the year 2019. While it has been some time since the latest word, today we have an update for you on the second BLADE RUNNER movie.
With Sony Pictures having acquired the international distribution rights for BLADE RUNNER 2 we have learned that production on the film will indeed start this July.
We know for certain that Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Richard Deckard.
This will mark the third time that Ford will return to one of his iconic properties. His return performances as Indiana Jones and the recent Han Solo shines a bright light on him reprising Deckard once again.
Ryan Gosling will also play a role in the film.
Last year we learned that Dennis Villeneuve would be directing this new BLADE RUNNER film for Alcon Entertainment and 20th Century Fox. The screenplay was written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green and was based off an idea from the minds of Fancher and Ridley Scott. In the story, the new film will take place several decades after the ending of the original movie.
Ridley Scott will be involved as producer of the film along with Alcon's Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson. Scott's plate will be full for a while as he is also busy working on ALIEN: COVENANT.
We will continue to bring you more news on the BLADE RUNNER sequel as it unfolds.
