Ryan Gosling in negotiations for lead role in Blade Runner 2

04.16.2015

Ryan Gosling is shaping up to have one hell of a 2016. On top of starring in Guillermo Del Toro's HAUNTED MANSION and WHIPLASH director Damien Chazelle's new film LA LA LAND, The Wrap reports that he is also close to joining Harrison Ford in BLADE RUNNER 2.

Ridley Scott is producing BLADE RUNNER 2 which comes from a screenplay by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green. Fancher wrote the original BLADE RUNNER and developed the idea for the sequel alongside Ridley Scott. Scott will not be directing the film and will hand over the reins to PRISONERS filmmaker Denis Villeneuve. There is no word on the film's plot or who Gosling will play, only that Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Rick Deckard.

Gosling has been linked with tons of roles over the years ranging from superhero roles to a potential part in the new STAR WARS sequels. The actor is notoriously picky with his roles, so I think the chance to work with Villeneuve may be what sold him on the part. Hopefully the production snowballs from here and we get more names on board the project.

BLADE RUNNER 2 has no release date but production is aiming to start in Summer 2016.

Clearly the Bladerunner universe has masses of potential - I think Gosling could be a great choice if they're looking for someone Deckard-esque - you need someone with a dash of vulnerability if that's the sort of role - but as we don't really know where the plot's headed with this sequel yet, who can say. Reckon this is a decent choice, personally.

I'm actually suprised to see Gosling sign on considering he doesn't really seem to be a big budget movie guy. But the first Blade Runner is a classic and with all of the talent that is attached to this, why wouldn't someone as talented as Gosling NOT want to be in this??

The guy is one of my favorite actors and am glad to see him branching out a bit more into the mainstream (even though I have really enjoyed his more indie type films).

I hope they capture the mood of the original movie. I know that times have changed, but I hope Blade Runner 2 will be equally melancholic and dark as the original movie. It shouldn't show the big scale but follow some souls through the world of Blade Runner.

And please with a Vangelis Sountrack or something similiar!

He would be a great replicant.

He's already shown he has a vacuous, bored, almost complete disconnection from any human emotion, so... he's basically already a robot.

I went from not wanting this movie pre-Villeneuve, to kind of not even thinking about it (even with Ford on-board) to now actually being cautiously optimistic. I still maintain we don't NEED another Blade Runner, BUT Gosling is an actor who'd really fit in a existential, thinking sci-fi movie, and I'm surprised he hasn't done one yet. Plus, he's the right kind of movie star that could really play well opposite Ford.

I trust in this project

If Scott was attached to direct this, I would be skeptical , but with Dennis, I have the upmost hope that this will be a great film. Coming from Prisoners and Enemy, I know he can handle atmospheric projects with a lead actor who can play multiple layers. Gosling is a very good actor, and seeing him in a sci-fi film, I know he'll do great.
