It was announced the other day that Entertainment’s sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 masterpiece Blade Runner, starring Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright and Dave Bautista, will be released worldwide on October 6, 2017.
Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Prisoners), today it was reported that Ana de Armas, one of the sadistic beauties in Eli Roth’s Knock Knock, is co-starring in the followup that begins filming this coming July.
The sequel, set several decades after the original, is written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, and succeeds the initial story by Fancher and David Peoples based on Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. Story details are not being revealed.
Multi-Oscar nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins (Sicario, Prisoners) will reunite with Villeneuve on the project.
Warner Bros will release the film in North America and Sony Pictures Releasing International will distribute in all overseas territories in all media.
