It has been a few years since we had news on the reported new Blade Runner in development, aside from some denials that Harrison Ford would return as Decker. But today it was announced that Ryan Gosling would star in what is now definitely a sequel to the Ridley Scott classic – and we hear that Harrison Ford will indeed return.
Hampton Fancher, who co-wrote the original, and Michael Green (Green Lantern) have written the screenplay, which will be helmed by Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve. Plot details are being kept under wraps, other than it will take place several decades after the original. Shooting is expected to begin in Summer 2016.
