Robin Wright joins the Blade Runner sequel

“House of Cards” star Robin Wright is in final negotiations to star opposite Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling in Alcon’s “Blade Runner” sequel, reports Variety.

Denis Villeneuve is directing the untitled film from a script by Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original) and Michael Green.

Based on a story by Fancher and Ridley Scott, the film picks up several decades after the events of the original film, which was set in a dystopian 2019 Los Angeles.

We don’t have any details on Wright’s character yet.

Production will get underway in July with the film set to bow on January 12, 2018.
