For a few years now a sequel to Blade Runner has been in the works, which had the backing of both Harrison Ford and Ridley Scott. While Scott was attached to direct at one point, he’ll now only produce, with Denis Villeneuve helming.
Ryan Gosling has also been attached to star for quite a while, but it now seems they’re ready to move the project forwards, with THR reporting that Robin Wright is in final talks for a key role in the movie. There’s no info on the plot, although there are apparently three key female roles, with Wright nabbing on of them. Ford will also be back as Rick Deckard.
Wright’s involvement was dependent on her schedule, as she’s shooting Wonder Woman now, and also has the next season of House Of Cards to squeeze in. However, it looks like they’ve sorted things out and she will be ready to shoot the Blade Runner sequel when it starts filming in July.
