Ryan Gosling to Star in ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel

Ryan Gosling is in negotiations to star in the “Blade Runner” sequel alongside Harrison Ford, it was announced on Thursday.

“Prisoners” helmer Denis Villeneuve is directing the sci-fi thriller for Alcon Entertainment with Ridley Scott exec producing. Written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, the “Blade Runner” sequel will take place several decades after the 1982 original, which took place in a dystopian 2019 Los Angeles.

Ford will reprise his role as Rick Deckard in the film; it’s unknown whom Gosling will play.

The actor, who recently made his directorial debut on “Lost River,” will next be seen in “The Nice Guys” with Russell Crowe.

He is in production starring alongside Christian Bale, Brad Pitt and Steve Carell in “The Big Short.”

Villeneuve’s next film, “Sicario,” was announced as an official Cannes Film Festival entry on Thursday. It stars Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro.
