Guardians Of The Galaxy actor and former WWE superstar Dave Bautista is the latest addition to director Denis Villeneuve's upcoming Blade Runner sequel, in which he'll join a star-studded cast including Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling and Robin Wright.
While producers Andrew A. Kosove and Broderick Johnson have been tight-lipped about the production — and Bautista's role — we do know that the movie is set decades after Ridley Scott's iconic original film, with Ford returning as Rick Deckard, who may or may not be a Replicant, depending on which cut of the film you watch.
Bautista's movie stardom continues to rise following his roles in Guardians Of The Galaxy, its upcoming sequel, and Sony's recent James Bond flick Spectre. The actor relayed his excitement through a video post on his social media accounts:
Principal photography for Blade Runner 2 will begin in July.
