However, the actor refused to spill any juicy details on the plot of the sequel. He jokingly said that he was at the risk of death if he mentioned more about it.
It’s exciting. If I say anything more there’s a chip in me that will explode.
Ridley Scott, director of the original film, will be executive producing the sequel with Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble. Michael Green and Hampton Fancher are also signed on to the movie as scriptwriters. The idea of the movie was initially conceptualised by Fancher and Scott, with Alcon Entertainment picking it up in 2011.
The 1982 sci-fi classic tells the story of Deckard, a police operative who is assigned to hunt down the machines called “replicants”, which are visually indistinguishable from adult humans. Mixed review were given to the film, with some criticising its pacing while others praised it thematic complexity.
The sequel is expected to take place several decades after the original film, which was set in Los Angeles in November 2019. The storyline, however, has yet to be released.
Denis Villeneuve is set to take the director’s seat while Bud Yorkin, Andrew A. Kosove, Broderick Johnson, and Cynthia Sikes Yorkin will produce it.
Personally, we’re glad that Gosling finally confirmed that he’ll be starring in this sequel. After all, who doesn’t like it when a hot stuff is about to star in a movie? 😉
