Nothing much is known for the sequel to Blade Runner with the exception that Harrison Ford is set to return alongside new additions Ryan Gosling, and Denis Villeneuve directing. Now Robin Wright (Forrest Gump, House of Cards) joins them in an as of yet unknown role. The film’s release date is set for Jan. 12, 2018.
I don’t think Ford is really going to be anything but mostly background noise for this film, and give fans of the original something to hold on to only midway. Either way Ford is only a paycheck now, so it doesn’t really matter.
