Robin Wright Cast in the Blade Runner Sequel
Robin Wright is in final talks to join the Blade Runner sequel, joining Ryan Gosling and returning star Harrison Ford. The film will be directed by Denis Villeneuve, best known for acclaimed thrillers Sicario and Prisoners.

The nature of Wright's role is unknown, as plot details are being held tightly under wraps, but there are reportedly three major female roles, and she's filling one of them. Negotiations for her casting were held up by her schedule for House of Cards, but the conflicts have been resolved and she's set to join the film. 

This would be Wright's first foray into nerd culture (unless you count Unbreakable), except she was also just cast as Diana Prince's aunt, Amazon general Antiope, in the solo Wonder Woman movie. We're glad that they were able to work around her busy schedule and include her in Blade Runner 2, both because she's a talented actress and because her HOC character proves she would make a great Replicant. 
Blade Runner 2 opens on January 12, 2018.
