Today it was announced that Ryan Gosling is in negotiations to star alongside Harrison Ford in the Blade Runner sequel. Enemy and Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve will direct, which certainly lends some confidence to the project, and Blade Runner screenwriter Hampton Fancher is credited with Everwood and Smallville writer Michael Green for the screenplay. Ridley Scott will executive produce.
This is all we know! But it's something - getting Gosling in there has certainly never hurt a movie, and after exactly two seconds in today's The Force Awakens trailer, everyone's feeling pretty warmly toward Harrison Ford. So...good timing, announcement!
