Dastmalchian, Abbas Join “Blade Runner 2”

David Dastmalchian (“Ant-Man”) and Hiam Abbass (“Exodus: Gods and Kings”) have joined the cast of Alcon Entertainment’s untitled sequel to “Blade Runner” which begins shooting later this year.

Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford and Robin Wright also star in this follow-up to the Ridley Scott 1982 sci-fi classic. As per usual, specifics about the characters of the new additions are being kept under wraps.

The story picks up several decades after the conclusion of the first film and has Ford reprising his role of replicant hunter Rick Deckard. Denis Villeneuve is directing the project which is scheduled for an October 2017 release.
