WETLANDS Star Carla Juri Joins BLADE RUNNER 2

This cast just keeps getting better.

Say what you will about the very idea of a Blade Runner sequel: the one Denis Villeneuve's putting together is amassing a pretty impressive cast. 

So far that cast has included Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, and Dave Bautista. Today, it gained another talent player: Wetlands star Carla Juri. 

Wetlands was not, as you may recall, the kind of film you could recommend to just anyone, but those who have seen it will probably agree when I say that Juri's a fearless talent. I think any film would be lucky to have her. 

And frankly, Blade Runner 2 needs all the luck it can get. Despite the A+ hiring of Villeneuve, Ridley Scott serving as Executive Producer, Harrison Ford returning to reprise his second-most iconic role, and a stacked-deck of a cast, many people are still giving this project the side-eye. Which, y'know, fair enough. Blade Runner 2 has quite a bit to live up to.

The film arrives in 2017. I've already gone on-record as being cautiously optimistic about it. How about you guys?
