Blade Runner 2 is in the works and will be set decades after the events in the first film. The sequel's list of cast and crew is also gradually being filled in, with latest addition, being Oscar-nominated cinematographer, Roger Deakins.

Blade Runner has been one of the successful and iconic movies in the 1980s and the news about a sequel after so many years have garnered mixed reactions from fans. But most recent reports about the film suggest that it is in good hands.

According to People, Harrison is set to reprise his role as the replicant hunter, Rick Deckard. Aside from him, Ryan Gosling is also set to star in the movie as a currently undisclosed character. Production for Blade Runner 2 is said to begin in summer 2016 which gives Ford ample time to recover from his injuries which he got from a plane crash last March.

A director has also been chosen for the sequel, as Denis Villeneuve is officially on board to helm the film, according to previous report. Villeneuve is also set to work with renowned cinematographer Roger Deakins.

The upcoming movie is said to be Deakins and Villeneuve's the third collaboration, after working together in films "Prisoner" (2013), and "Sicario" (2015). Other works by Deakins also includes "Skyfall", "The Shawshank Redemption", and "No Country for Old Men".

Meanwhile, as reported by MNR Daily, speaking about the violence portrayed in the original movie, Villeneuve reportedly said that it was depicted in a way that was not just about gore and blood. According to Villeneuve, the violence was portrayed in a mature manner, "the violence was approached in a very human way. The violence was very maturely realized." He said.

Although details about the plot are currently scarce, Blade Runner 2 has been reported to be set several decades after the events in the first movie. The original movie was set in the year 2019.

No release date has been given for Blade Runner 2 yet but more details about the sequel are expected to be revealed in the coming months.

It might end up being pretty good (I almost have more faith in it because Ridley isn't directing it) but it's one of those films where it's kind of like, Why bother? Is anyone really clamoring for a sequel? Didn't the original tie things up perfectly ambiguously, and wouldn't a sequel stand a greater chance of unraveling those threads? Especially since the ending is a much, much discussed element of the first film...

I'll see it, I hope it's good, but I don't see there being a propulsive reason for it to exist.

I'm with Ford on the interpretation of the original, not Scott. The film makes no sense if

Deckard is a replicant. The whole point is contrasting a human's lack of humanity with the Replicants' sensitivity.

Blade Runner was an amazing movie.

I'm sure besides Harrison Ford, there will be younger actors who can kick ass because I doubt Ford could pull it off anymore. Great actor, but he's in his 70's now. He almost got killed filming the new Star Wars.

He only broke his ankle.

He will be 74 when they start filming....

I dunno, man

What's with this rehash wave of old/burned out action stars?

It gets boring and they constantly destroy the original films legacies

It would be "relevant" or interesting in the 80's, but now....

not so much

I have read Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? ;) The film is so different that it doesn't need to have same ambiguous ending re: toad. Harrison Ford's laconic manner in the film is in clear contrast to the hyperemotional Replicants.
