According to Variety, producers are keen to cast Gosling in the starring role, alongside Harrison Ford, with the film set "several decades" after the original's 2019 dystopian future.

Helmed by French-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve and produced by Ridley Scott, 'Blade Runner 2' is expected to go into production next year for a 2017 release, to mark the 35th anniversary of the original.
