Making her professional debut in Cihan Inan’s 180º, Juri earned rave reviews for performance and won the Swiss Film Prize for Best Supporting Actress. She went on to appear in two critically-acclaimed movies that screened at the Sundance Film Festival: the aforementioned German film Wetlands in 2014 and the comedic drama Morris From America in 2016.
Juri’s involvement with Blade Runner 2 signals her transition from independent, mainly-foreign films to big-budgeted Hollywood movies. It also will pit her alongside such notable talent as Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista and Harrison Ford, who is reprising his lead role from the original film:
The Blade Runner sequel is set several decades after the 1982 original, with Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role as Rick Deckard. The film is written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, and succeeds the initial story by Fancher and David Peoples based on Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Story details are not being revealed yet.
Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Prisoners) is directing the film, reuniting with multi-Oscar nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins (Sicario, Prisoners). Principal photography is scheduled to begin in July, targeting an October 6, 2017 release date. The film will be released by Warner Bros. in North America and Sony Pictures Releasing International will distribute in all media for all overseas territories.
