Sicario filmmaker Denis Villeneuve is on board as director of Blade Runner 2, the sequel to Ridley Scott’s original.

Ryan Gosling has revealed that the Blade Runner sequel is an “extension” of the first film and not a remake.

The actor, 35, said the new movie will not be a remake of the 1982 sci-fi, reported Digital Spy.

“I can say that we start shooting in July, Harrison will be in and it’s not a remake of the story, more an extension. I’m really excited because I’m a huge fan of the original - I think that, aside from Alien, it’s one of the more important science fiction films ever.”
