Ryan Gosling is out doing press for The Nice Guys, but he's getting some questions about Blade Runner 2 along the way. The actor said with a laugh that he does "not wanna mess that up!" in an interview with IGN, where he showed his excitement for the upcoming sequel three decades in the making.
"As a fan of the film, the fact that Ridley [Scott] and Harrison [Ford] wanted to extend that story and keep going was exciting enough. The idea of getting to be an actor involved in that some way is really - I kinda can't believe it. I'll believe it when I'm there and doing it," Gosling said.
Gosling was one of the early additions to the cast after the film was officially announced and Harrison Ford's return confirmed. Since, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, and Dave Bautista have also joined the cast. The film is in pre-production now for an October 6, 2017 release.
