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.
Dennis Villeneuve directs this new BLADE RUNNER film which began some time ago for Alcon Entertainment.
With one year to go until the actual release, it has been announced that the official title of the film will be BLADERUNNER 2049.
Here is a photo from the set featuring Villenueve, Scott, Ford, and Gosling.
BLADERUNNER 2049 stars Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Jared Leto, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Carla Juri, Dave Bautista, Barkhad Abdi, Cameron Howe, David Dastmalchian, Lennie James, Hiam Abbass, and Harrison Ford, returning in his original role as Rick Deckard. This will mark the third time that he 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.
The screenplay was written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green and was based off an idea from the minds of Fancher and Ridley Scott.
With Sony Pictures having acquired the international distribution rights for BLADE RUNNER 2049, production on the film is set to begin very soon.
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.
BLADE RUNNER 2049 is set to be released on October 6, 2017.
