Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel, with Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, Sets Release Date

Denis Villeneuve's 'Blade Runner' Sequel, with Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, Sets Release Date

The film, directed by Villeneuve (“Sicario”) and written by “Blade Runner” co-writer Hampton Fancher with Michael Green — from a story by Fancher and Ridley Scott — picks up several decades
after the conclusion of the 1982 original. 
Produced by Alcon Entertainment, which acquired the film, television and ancillary franchise rights to Scott’s classic sci-fi noir in 2011, the sequel stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, reprising his role as Rick Deckard. Principal photography is set to begin in July, with Oscar-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins reuniting with “Sicario” and “Prisoners” collaborator Villeneuve.

Sony Pictures Releasing International will distribute day-and-date in all overseas
territories. Alcon’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson are producers, as is Cynthia Sikes Yorkin. Bud Yorkin will receive a producer credit. Scott has signed on as executive producer, along with Bill Carraro (“Terminator Genisys,” “The Golden Compass”) and Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble of Thunderbird Films.

A Canadian Director (one of the best) and DOP Roger Deacons…Hampton Fancher co-writing…speechless.

Yes–a January release does not bode well for the film’s quality nor the producers faith in it. I’m troubled that Ridley Scott will not direct. He’s lent his talent to some mediocre projects in recent years. Could it be that he’s too old to get bonded to act as director? The usual cut-off age is seventy (such rules do not apply to Clint Eastwood or Woody Allen, who finance their work in unique ways).


It’s probably not a good idea to mention "Terminator Genisys" when trying to attract interest in a movie. Despite my incredibly high apprehension concerning a sequel to a classic & truly unique movie the talent involved with this movie has me intrigued. The January release date is a bit of a red flag though.

I hope they bring back Vangelis to score it.
