BLADE RUNNER Sequel Gets An Early 2018 Release Date

It's been thirty-four years since director Ridley Scott brought us the original Blade Runner, and in a few short months, the sequel to the sci-fi classic will kick off production with Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling in tow.

Nearly thirty-five years after the Ridley Scott-directed original hit theaters, Blade Runner is finally getting a sequel with Harrison Ford (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) all set to return as Rick Deckard. Yesterday, Warner Bros. Pictures officially placed Blade Runner 2 on their upcoming release schedule, assigning the film a Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend release date - January 12, 2018.

Denis Villeneuve (Sicario) is currently attached to direct with a script from Michael Green (Wolverine 3) & Hampton Fancher (Blade Runner). Academy Award-nominee Ryan Gosling (The Nice Guys) has been confirmed to star in the lead role alongside Ford and even though he's not directing, Ridley Scott (The Martian) will still serve as an executive producer on the project.

The film is expected to kick off production this July.
