Ryan Gosling: ‘Blade Runner sequel will be a musical’

Ryan Gosling has found a way of talking about his upcoming Blade Runner movie without upsetting studio bosses – he’s pretending it’s a musical.
The actor is currently in the middle of a press tour for his upcoming movie The Nice Guys and he’s beginning to tire of questions about another project – the much-anticipated Blade Runner sequel.
So, instead of grumpily refusing to talk about the film, he has started telling curious reporters the movie is a star-studded musical, packed with dancing girls and Broadway-style tunes.
Asked by one hack if he could share any information about his new role, Ryan quipped, “I am singing and dancing in it and you probably won’t want to see me do that again!
“Most of the dance numbers are on practical locations but there’s one where we had a whole freeway overpass for a day and people were dancing on cars and it was pretty amazing.
“I think I practised a month and a half just for one scene because we would only have four or five takes and we had to get it in one of them. I gave it a shot and I had a great time. I really had a special experience on that movie. I’m very excited for people to see the film.”
But, in all seriousness, Gosling has been sworn to secrecy about the Blade Runner sequel.
“There’s literally a sniper on that roof if I say anything about Blade Runner,” he said.
Ryan will join Dutch actress Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, and Ana de Armas in the sci-fi film.
Harrison Ford will reprise his role as robot hunter Rick Deckard from the 1982 film, which was based on Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
The Blade Runner sequel is slated to hit U.S. screens on 6 October, 2017.
