Ridley Says Ryan To Be Runner

Ridley Scott has suggested that Ryan Gosling will take the lead in the new “Blade Runner” film, with original star Harrison Ford in a supporting role. Gosling was first reported to be in talks to join the sequel, which is set many decades in the future from the first film’s 2019 Los Angeles setting, in April. Prisoners and Sicario director Denis Villeneuve is taking charge of the cameras on the new film, with Ford returning as “blade runner” Rick Deckard and Scott in a producer’s role. Interviewed by Den of Geek, the veteran film-maker suggested that Gosling was close to signing on and would move front and centre for the follow-up. “I think Ryan Gosling is probably going to do it, with Harrison,” said Scott. Asked whether the Drive actor would be the central character, he replied: “Yeah, yeah. I can’t really say more than that, because it’ll give away the story. But Harrison’s definitely in it. In an important way.”
