Robin Wright is in final negotiations to join the movie. The story that screenwriters Hampton Fancher and Michael Green have come up with is being kept under wraps, so your guess is as good as ours about how Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi classic will be continued.

Production begins in July and the “Untitled Blade Runner Sequel” will open on January 12, 2018.
