According to Deadline, Sony Pictures has partnered with Alcon Entertainment for the overseas distribution to the Blade Runner Sequel. Denis Villenueve (Enemy and Sicario) is set to direct with Ryan Goslin co-staring alongside Harrison Ford, who is returning to reprise his role as Richard Deckard. The film is set to start filming in July.
The film's plot is largely a mystery, but we do know that it is set to take place several decades after the originals 2019 setting. It will have to be since we're already dangerously close to 2019 and we don't have any Replicants yet.
