Production may be underway on Denis Villeneuve's secretive Blade Runner sequel, but details remain extremely scarce. In fact, before today we didn't even know what the movie's title would be. But now that's changed, and the title is certainly appropriate.
The film is officially titled Blade Runner 2049, which makes sense considering that will be the year it takes place. That places it 30 years after the events of Ridley Scott's 1982 sci-fi classic.

As you can see from the above image, Ryan Gosling will be heading up the sequel with Harrison Ford back in the role of Rick Deckard. Robin Wright, Jared Leto, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Carla Juri, Mackenzie Davis and Barkhad Abdi will co-star. Will they be playing humans or replicants, though?
