Fresh off the announcement that the film will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, Lionsgate has unveiled the first Sicario image from Prisoners and Enemy director Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming dramatic actioner. Penned by Taylor Sheridan, the story takes place near the U.S.-Mexico border and stars Emily Blunt as an idealistic FBI agent who is enlisted by members of a government task force (Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro) to take out a Mexican cartel boss. This is one of my most anticipated films of the year for a number of reasons. First off, female-led action films are rare, and Emily Blunt is incredible. Secondly, while I wasn’t blown away by Prisoners, I thought Villeneuve’s Enemy was superb. And thirdly, freaking Roger Deakins is the cinematographer, reuniting with Villeneuve after Prisoners. He’s simply the most masterful director of photography working today, and »

While some filmmakers only find out the night before, Cannes Film Festival’s Thierry Frémaux informed Denis Villeneuve that he’d be part of the Main Comp mix almost three weeks back. Having been on the Croisette before with his debut film Un 32 août sur Terrre (Un Certain Regard), and the Directors’ Fortnight was home for his epic short Next Floor and sobering Polytechnique, the Quebecois helmer saw his critically lauded Incendies and Enemy receive a pass from the fest, but it was this work that ultimately convinced backers with deep pockets to have the auteur filmmaker move onto large-scale productions (Prisoners, Story of Us, the Blade Runner sequel), and in turn Sicario is now among the hopefuls for the Palme d’Or.
The film’s Canadian distributor Entertainment One hosted a press conference the morning of the Cannes announcement and we learned that the filmmaker (who is one degree »

While a sequel to one of Harrison Ford’s most iconic cinema associations was being celebrated yesterday, there was some stealthier news about another. Variety reports that Ryan Gosling is now in negotiations to join the once and future Rick Deckard in the Blade Runner sequel.Plot details for the new movie are scant at this point, though we do know it will take place after the events of the original and features Ford back as Deckard. As for what Gosling might do in the movie? That has yet to be released from the vault of security around the film.Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve is directing this follow-up to Ridley Scott’s 1982 tech noir thriller, with Hampton Fancher and Michael Green providing the script. Scott is on board as executive producer and consultant for the film, presumably hoping this one doesn’t need 17 different cuts when all is said and done. »
Ryan Gosling’s been hot on his heels lately, running from one project to the next. He’s just finished his directorial debut Lost River, and wrapped on Shane Black’s (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) The Nice Guys, and Terrence Malick’s Weightless. He’s currently shooting an Adam Mckay film starring Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Steve Carell, titled The Big Short.
Now he’s in talks to star in Blade Runner 2 alongside Harrison Ford (whose face graces the new and great Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer) returning as Deckard. Not much is known plotwise, but we know it’s been penned by Blade Runner co-writer Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, based on an idea between Ridley Scott and Fancher. It’s supposed to take place several decades after the original, meaning Deckard is appropriately much older (and perhaps still a replicant? But lets not get into that »

In February, Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve was hired to be at the helm of the film that will be produced by Ridley Scott, director of the original film, with a script from Hampton Fancher, co-writer of the original Blade Runner, with Green Lantern writer Michael Green contributing as well.

Not only is Denis Villeneuve heading to Cannes for the first time with "Sicario," but the Canadian filmmaker may have his second lead for his next film, the untitled "Blade Runner" sequel. Alcon Entertainment announced today that Ryan Gosling is negotiating to star in the new "Blade Runner" opposite Harrison Ford who will reprise his role as Rick Deckard.

Where Gosling fits in to a new Blade Runner movie remains to be seen, and given that shooting doesn't start until summer 2016, we might not find out for a while, either.
Ridley Scott is attached to executive produce, and Blade Runner 2 is set to take place many decades after the original film. Hampton Fancher and Michael Green have come up with the script for this one.
We're guessing that Blade Runner 2 will be arriving in 2018, and maybe »

If you're a fan of sequels to 30-year-old science fiction films that also happen to star Harrison Ford, today has got to be a damn solid entry in your blessed little week. Ryan Gosling is now in talks to star in Alcon Entertainment's upcoming Blade Runner sequel. The nature of his character is being kept under wraps, but expect him to share some screentime with the returning Ford (still playing Rick Deckard, which flies in the face of the accepted theory that he is a replicant). As we learned a few months back, Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve will direct Blade Runner 2 from a script by Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original film) and Michael Green. The film is set several decades after the events of the original movie. Ridley Scott will serve as executive producer. While I think the first Blade Runner is a high watermark in sci-fi aesthetic, I »

Deadline is reporting that Ryan Gosling is in early negotiations to star in the long-awaited sci-fi sequel Blade Runner 2. In February, Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve was confirmed to direct the follow-up with original leading man Harrison Ford set to reprise his role as Rick Deckard. Initial reports indicate that the story details and character descriptions remain under lock and key for now, but it’s believed that Gosling will co-star alongside Ford.
Ridley Scott, who helmed the original, relinquished his spot in the director’s seat but will stay on as an executive producer alongside Thunderbird Films’ Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble. Blade Runner producers Bud Yorkin and Cynthia Sikes Yorkin will return to produce alongside Alcon Entertainment’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.
As mentioned above, the story is being kept under wraps, but fans need not worry about whether or not the movie will remain faithful to the mythology of the first. »

Ridley Scott, who directed the original classic based on the Philip K. Dick novel, is aboard as executive producer.

The films competing in the 68th Cannes Film Festival were announced this morning at a press conference in Paris. The festival’s new president Pierre Lescure and Thierry Frémaux kept the suspense going as they unveiled this year’s eclectic and rather art house-y selection. In total, 16 films have been selected in the official competition thus far. Another four films are set to be added in the next couple of weeks. The official competition will be presided by the Coen Brothers. Their short film about cinema, which had screened for the 65th anniversary of the festival in 2007, was once again shown at the press conference. Starring Josh Brolin, it is both funny and poignant. American competitors include Todd Haynes with Carol, starring Cate Blanchett, and Gus Van Sant is marking his return to the Croisette with The Sea of Trees, starring Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts. Australian co-production Macbeth, directed by Justin Kurzel, »
