Blade Runner 2 Gets a Release Date
Blade Runner 2 is many years in the making, but it looks like we'll have to wait a couple more years, as the sequel is officially set to be released on January 12, 2018.

Blade Runner 2 will be directed by Denis Villeneuve, best known for crime thrillers Prisoners and Sicario, and star Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford returning as Rick Deckard, who will appear in the third act of the film and will finally be revealed as either human or replicant (read: confirmed to be a replicant). Most of the creative team behind Blade Runner will be back, as original writer Hampton Francher is on board to write and Ridley Scott is executive producing. 

Little is known about the story, except that it takes place decades after the first film (which makes sense, given Ford's presence), and will diverge even further from the universe of Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? But needless to say, considering that the replicants were supposed to die after four years, if Deckard is revealed to be a replicant, they'll have a lot of explaining to do.
