One of the most influential sic-fi movies of all time’s sequel, being released 33 years after its predecessor, has gotten a star and director. Ryan Gosling will take on the sequel along with Harrison Ford as the stars of the series, and director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario, Enemy) are set to helm the new project. Based off his filmography, Villeneuve knows how to do tension and mystery as shown in Prisoners, and he can also that symbolism/poetry shit like in Enemy. Blade Runner is all about that symbolism for humanity and what not, and Gosling can kill super serious roles like being the Driver in the art house masterpiece ‘Drive’.  Yeah, you could say I’m looking forward to it.
