It's been announced that Sylvia Hoeks has been cast in a leading role in Denis Villeneuve's BLADE RUNNER sequel.

The Dutch actress and model will star alongside Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista and Ana de Armas in the follow-up to Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic, and in a statement Alcon’s Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove said “Sylvia is a radiant talent, a tremendous actress with great appeal in a wide variety of roles. Her addition to this vastly accomplished international cast is a perfect fit."

Hoeks isn't a huge name in the U.S., however she did win the Best Supporting Actress Golden Calf (the Dutch equivalent of the Oscars) for her performance in Jos Stelling's DUSKA, and will appear in the upcoming action thriller THE LAKE.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but we do know that the sequel will pick up 30 years after the original movie with Ford returning as Rick Deckard, and, well, that's about it. Filming is set to begin this July with Villeneuve directing from a script by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green.

BLADE RUNNER 2 will be in theaters on October 6, 2017.
