It’s been over a year since Blade Runner 2 tapped Sicario director Denis Villeneuve to helm, with Ryan Gosling joining Harrison Ford in the long-developing sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic. With filming slated to begin this summer, the project is really starting to come together, with Robin Wright joining the cast as of yesterday, while today brings an interesting potential new addition: Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista.

Denis Villeneuve is set to begin filming Blade Runner 2 this summer, and as pre-production picks up steam, so do the casting announcements for the highly-anticipated project— which means this thing is absolutely happening. Robin Wright has joined Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford in the long-awaited sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic (and arguable masterpiece, depending on which version you’re watching), snatching up one of three major female roles in the film.

It’s still kind of hard to believe that all these years later, we’re finally getting a Blade Runner sequel. Even after they announced the project, even after they claimed people like Ryan Gosling and the original film’s star, Harrison Ford, were involved, it seemed like a pipe dream; the sort of thing people talk about online for years as a possibility that never actually materializes.

For a while it didn’t seem like Ridley Scott would ever make his long-promised (threatened?) sequel to Blade Runner, which suited most fans of the classic dystopian sci-fi flick just fine. But when director Denis Villeneuve and cinematographer Roger Deakins signed on, suddenly Blade Runner 2 was not only actually happening, but it sounded like a great idea. Although he was previously only rumored for a role in the sequel, Ryan Gosling is now confirming his part in the film, while Scott has offered details on what we might expect from the opening scene.

We had a chat with Roger Deakins last month, in which the famed cinematographer spoke briefly about re-teaming with Prisoners and Sicario director Denis Villeneuve for Blade Runner 2, the sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi masterpiece. Deakins couldn’t tell us too much, but he did get us a bit more excited about the upcoming sequel. Your excitement may vary based on the latest from Deakins, who reveals that Blade Runner 2 will probably be post-converted to 3D.

In this week’s most intriguing and sort of odd sequel news, Lionsgate is already developing a sequel to Sicario, Denis Villeneuve’s new drug war thriller starring Emily Blunt and Benicio Del Toro. While the film doesn’t hit theaters for another couple of weeks, Villeneuve’s latest has already become a hit with critics following its debut at TIFF, and apparently Del Toro’s character is compelling enough to warrant a sequel.

If you’ve watched a movie in the last 25 years and thought to yourself “God, this film looks great,” odds are it was shot by Roger Deakins. The master cinematographer of such modern classics as The Shawshank Redemption, No Country for Old Men, and Skyfall is considered the best director of photography working today by almost everyone on the planet (except the Academy, which has nominated him twelve different times but never given him an Oscar).

Roger Deakins is widely regarded as one of the greatest cinematographers on the planet (except by the Academy, who’ve inexplicably never awarded him an Oscar despite 11 nominations). Deakins’ name in a film’s credits is a guarantee that no matter how terrible everything else in a movie is (and he has shot a couple stinkers), the movie will look gorgeous.
