According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robin Wright is in “final talks” to join the Blade Runner sequel.
Sicario‘s Denis Villeneuve will direct the film, which star Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard, the role he played in the original film. Ryan Gosling will also star in the film, but it is unclear if he will be Replicant, Blade Runner or something else entirely. In fact, most details about the film are unknown other than it will take place decades after the 1982 original.
Wright’s role in the film is also unknown, though THR reports there are three major female roles in the project.
Ridley Scott, director of the first film, will produce. Original screenwriter Hampton Fancher returned to co-write the script with Michael Green from an idea by Scott and Fancher.
The film is scheduled for a January 12th, 2018 release.
