Davis is just one of many actors whose names have been attached to the project. In addition to Harrison Ford, who will reprise his role as Rick Deckard from the original 1982 film, the movie’s cast also includes Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, and Carla Juri. For the most part, the roles to be played by each actor remain unknown.
The 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.
Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEO’s of Thunderbird Films, will serve as executive producers. Ridley Scott will also executive produce. Bill Carraro will executive produce.
Vancouver-born Davis studied acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York. Shortly thereafter, she was discovered by director Drake Doremus for her acting debut in the 2013 independent feature film Breathe In co-starring alongside Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones and Amy Ryan.
