Not long after learning that the man behind the terrific PRISONERS and ENEMY, Denis Villeneuve, will be helming the long-talked about sequel to Ridley Scott’s BLADE RUNNER, is word from Deadline that Ryan Gosling is in negotiations to lead the film. This, of course, comes on the heels of the recent announcement that Gosling is also in talks to star in Guillermo del Toro’s HAUNTED MANSION; I think it’s safe to say that we’ll be seeing plenty of Gosling around these parts in the future, which is certainly not a bad thing.

As of right now, all we really know about the sequel is that it will take place several decades after the conclusion of the 1982 original. Other than that, though, we don’t know much about story details or Gosling’s character.

Ridley Scott, who directed the original classic based on the Philip K. Dick novel, is aboard as executive producer. Harrison Ford, who starred in the original film, reprises his role as replicant hunter Rick Deckard. Shooting begins summer 2016 and Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original) and Michael Green have written the original screenplay based on an idea by Fancher and Scott.
