In a recent interview to promote The Martian, Sir Ridley Scott has revealed some new details about the highly anticipated Blade Runner sequel which is set to be directed by Denis Villeneuve. Confirming that Ryan Gosling will star opposite Harrison Ford in the movie, the filmmaker went into detail about the possible setting of the follow-up in relation to the first.

“It was 2017,” he explained in relation to Blade Runner, “so coming back it’ll be 2047, roughly. As young as you can play Ryan Gosling. He’s 34, but he looks 27 when he’s doing his push-ups. So maybe 2050.” Scott also revealed that it was the script which brought Ford back to the franchise, so while he’s not at the helm, he’s obviously confident it will be good!

Now, what about that decades old debate about whether or not Deckard is a Replicant? Consider it over! “Of course he’s a bloody Replicant! He’s going to have to admit it.” But wait, don’t they die after four years? “I’m not going to tell you. You’ll have to see the story. It’ll all make sense.” That’s quite the promise, and the Blade Runner sequel can’t get here soon enough. For details on what’s to come in Alien: Paradise Lost, watch the video below!
