According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Martian and What If's Mackenzie Davis has joined the upcoming Blade Runner sequel.
The film will star a returning Harrison Ford as Blade Runner Rick Deckard. The script by original film co-writer Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, based on a story by Fancher and Blade Runner director Ridley Scott, is shrouded in mystery. All anyone knows for sure: it is set several decades later, a recurring feature in Ford's work of late.
As for Davis, she could very well be human or more than human as the nature of man and machine gets blurred in the Los Angeles of Blade Runner.
Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright and Dave Bautista are also set to star with production under the direction of Sicario's Denis Villeneuve in July and set for release on October 6th 2017.
