Ryan Gosling In Negotiations For ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel

Excuse me while I lose my mind. Ryan Gosling is in final negotiations to star in the new Blade Runner sequel, directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners).

Harrison Ford is also attached to reprise the role of Rick Deckard, who we first met in Ridley Scott‘s 1982 sci-fi classic. It’s not known who will be the film’s lead (it could be Ford’s Deckard continuing to drive the story forward, or Gosling’s character could take the reins), but either way, the casting of Gosling is pretty damn exciting.

Blade Runner was a sci-fi thriller that took place in a dystopian 2019 Los Angeles, and the sequel will be set several years after. Scott’s original has been hailed as one of the best, if not the best, sci-fi movies of all time, and that we’re getting a sequel over 30 years later is surreal, to say the least. Right now we don’t know very much about the project, but Gosling’s involvement is a good sign.
