BLADE RUNNER 2 (2018): Robin Wright In Talks To Join

Robin Wright

Robin Wright being considered for Blade Runner 2. The Golden Globe-winning actress is in the final stages of negotiations to appear in the long-awaited sequel to the 1982 Ridley Scott film.

If the talks go through, Wright will be acting opposite Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, who starred in the original Blade Runner. It is unknown at this point what role she will play in the film, about which details remain scarce as well.

Blade Runner 2 isn’t the only high-profile project that Wright will be involved with in the near future. She continues to play the role of Claire Underwood alongside Kevin Spacey in Netflix‘s acclaimed original series House of Cards, and it was recently confirmed that she will co-star in next year’s Wonder Woman. After that movie, viewers will have her performance in Blade Runner 2 to look forward to:

Blade Runner 2 (which has still not announced its official title) is set several decades after the 1982 original. Harrison Ford will reprise 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, as well as Wright’s character, are not being revealed.

Alcon Entertainment acquired the Blade Runner 2, television and ancillary franchise rights to the franchise in 2011 from the late producer Bud Yorkin and Cynthia Sikes Yorkin to produce prequels and sequels to the iconic science-fiction thriller. Cynthia Sikes Yorkin will produce along with Johnson and Kosove. Bud Yorkin will receive producer credit.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
