It was announced yesterday at Ryan Gosling is currently in talks to star in the upcoming Blade Runner 2, which will be directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners). The script is written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, and it takes place decades after the events of the original movie.

News has been slim on the Blade Runner 2 front since the announcement that Ridley Scott won’t be directing the movie; and while Harrison Ford will return for the sequel, he probably won’t make his appearance until the third act of the movie, given that the current driving action of the film is a search for Deckard and finding out what happened to him.

So if two of the biggest draws are only going to be marginally involved with the film, then it’ll be important for Blade Runner to nab an appropriately intriguing cast, and I think Gosling would be a great fit. He’s defintely got that brooding quality that you need for the dystopian future!

There’s no word yet on when filming will start, so fingers crossed things work out with Gosling and that we’ll see Blade Runner 2 hit theaters in the next couple of years.
