Blade Runner 2049

It’s been five years since the sequel was first announced, and now Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment have announced that BLADE RUNNER 2049 is the official title of the follow-up to the 1982 Ridley Scott film.

The title indicates that the film is set 30 years after the original film, which was in turn based on the Philip K. Dick novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Directed by Dennis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario) and written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, the sequel will see Harrison Ford return as Deckard, alongside Ryan Gosling.

Other cast members include Robin Wright, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Carla Juri, Mackenzie Davis, Barkhad Abdi, David Dastmalchian, Hiam Abbass, Lennie James, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto.

The film is set for release on 6 October 2017.
