It’s a huge day for sneak peeks at upcoming films, but if you’re looking for something a little different (i.e. not Star Wars or superheroes or Dark Towers), we’ve got just the thing: Beautiful new concept art from Blade Runner 2, director Denis Villeneuve’s sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi masterpiece, which sees Harrison Ford returning to yet another iconic role for one of our most anticipated films of 2017.

To say we’re excited for a new Denis Villeneuve film is an understatement. After the fantastic triple-threat of Prisoners, Enemy and Sicario, the director is moving on to the realm of sci-fi with Story of Your Life and Blade Runner 2. Before the latter arrives next year, we have the former to look forward to, with a cast that includes Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner — and it looks like it just got a title change and an official release date.

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.

A ‘Sicario’ Sequel Focusing on Benicio Del Toro’s Hitman Character Is in the Works

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.
