The new Blade Runner installment will instead be helmed by Denis Villeneuve,  director of such acclaimed film as  Prisoners and the doppelgänger mystery/thriller Enemy.

Variety reports that Gosling has entered negotiations to play a lead role in Blade Runner 2 (with Harrison Ford already confirmed to return as Rick Deckard), though beyond that there are no details about his potential role in the movie.

Blade Runner 2 is scheduled to begin filming in Summer 2016. We will let you know when the movie gets an official release date.
