‘Blade Runner’ sequel to star Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling is reportedly in negotiations to star in Alcon Entertainment’s sequel to Blade Runner, the film that will be directed by Prisoners helmer Denis Villeneuve. Ridley Scott, who directed the original classic based on the Philip K. Dick novel, is included only as executive producer.

Harrison Ford, who starred in the original film, reprises his role as replicant hunter Rick Deckard.

Deadline notes that “Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original) and Michael Green have written the original screenplay based on an idea by Fancher and Scott. The story takes place several decades after the conclusion of the 1982 original. Story details, as well as Gosling’s character, are not being revealed. Shooting begins in summer 2016.”

Gosling, the Drive star, does seem like a good fit for the film, Deadline even noted that the Notebook star “adds a certain cool element to the effort.”

Gosling has been cast in Guillermo del Toro’s The Haunted Mansion, with Emma Stone the Damien Chazelle-directed Lionsgate film  La La Land andShane Black’s The Nice Guys opposite Russell Crowe and in Terrence Malick’s Weightless.

Scott detailed a scene back in 2012, describing a scene visualized for Blade Runner 2. No word on what remains in the final script.

“There’ll be a vast farmland where there are no hedges or anything in sight, and it’s flat like the plains of—where’s the Great Plains in America? Kansas, where you can see for miles. And it’s dirt, but it’s being raked. On the horizon is a combine harvester which is futuristic with klieg lights, ‘cause it’s dawn. The harvester is as big as six houses. In the foreground is a small white clapboard hut with a porch as if it was from Grapes of Wrath. From the right comes a car, coming in about six feet off the ground being chased by a dog. And that’s the end of it, I’m not gonna tell you anything else.”
