Alcon Entertainment will release Blade Runner 2 on 12 January 2018, Deadline Hollywood has reported.

Principle photography on the sequel to the 80s science fiction classic has yet to begin, though the lead role has been confirmed.

Ryan Gosling will play the lead, and Harrison Ford is set to reprise his role as Rick Deckard.

The original film was based on the 1968 Philip K. Dick novel, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” and was directed by Ridley Scott.

Scott will not direct the sequel, as he is working on Prometheus 2.

However, the script he worked on with Hampton Fancher and Michael Green has been handed to Denis Villenueve, who Scott expressed confidence in.
