Jared Leto joins Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford in Blade Runner 2
It seems that his negative experience on Suicide Squad hasn’t deterred Jared Leto from joining another massive franchise, as the Oscar-winning actor is now confirmed to be joining the highly anticipated Blade Runner 2.
With Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright and Mackenzie Davis already signed on to the long belated sequel of the Ridley Scott 1982 classic, which will be directed by Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Prisoners), clues as to Leto’s role are slim at present, however we would love to see him taking on another villainous role.
We do know that Blade Runner 2 will be set 30 years after the original film, which was took place in 2019 in a futuristic Los Angeles, and saw police officer Rick Deckard (Ford) hunting lifelike robots known as replicants. Villeneuve has said that his film will be an “extension” of that story.
Blade Runner 2 opens on October 6th 2017.
