robin wrightAlcon Entertainment’s sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 masterpiece Blade Runner will star Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford (reprising his role as Rick Deckard), and is to be directed by Denis Villeneuve (Sciario, Prisoners).

Robin Wright (House of Cards) is in final negotiations to also join the film. The studio had wanted her involved for a while, but didn’t think it was possible due to her shooting schedule for House of Cards. Looks like that may be sorted now. There is no word on what character Wright will be playing, but she is a welcome addition to the film. It is thought the deal will be completed soon.

The film will be released by Warner Bros. in North America on January 12, 2018, it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-CEO’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.

Sony Pictures Releasing International will distribute in all overseas territories in all media.

The story, written by Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original) and Michael Green and based on a story by Fancher and Ridley Scott, takes up several decades after the conclusion of the 1982 original.

Principal photography is scheduled to begin in July, 2016. Multi-Oscar nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins (Sicario, Prisoners) will reunite with Villeneuve on the project.

Alcon Entertainment acquired the film, television and ancillary franchise rights to BLADE RUNNER in 2011 from the late producer Bud Yorkin and Cynthia Sikes Yorkin to produce prequels and sequels to the iconic science-fiction thriller. Cynthia Sikes Yorkin will produce along with Johnson and Kosove. Bud Yorkin will receive producer credit.

Ridley Scott will serve as Executive Producer. Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEO’s of Thunderbird Films, will also serve as executive producers along with Bill Carraro (“Terminator Genisys,” “The Golden Compass”).
