Blade Runner sequel gets a release date

The long-awaited sequel to Blade Runner finally has a confirmed release date. 

The movie, which will star a returning Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, is due to hit cinemas on January 12th in 2018. 

Denis Villeneuve, best known for his work on Sicario and Prisoners, has taken Ridley Scott's place in the director's chair, working from a script by Alien: Covenant scribe Michael Green and original co-writer Hampton Fancher. 

Plot details are being kept secret, but it is known that the new story will be set a number of decades after the completion of the original movie. 

Released in 1982, the original movie was set in a dystopian Los Angeles told the story of Ford's Rick Deckard, a man who hunts down genetically engineered androids visually indistinguishable from adult humans known as replicants.
