Jared Leto is joining the cast of Blade Runner 2.
There’s no news of who or what he’ll be portraying in Denis Villeneuve’s weird long-gap sequel, but let’s hope for everyone in the cast he will be a Replicant. Pulling his method shit as a robot would be best for everyone involved.
The existence of Blade Runner 2 makes little to no sense at all, but the involvement of Denis Villeneuve and cinematographer Roger Deakins is thrilling. And the cast is impressive: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, and yes even Jared Leto. He may have driven me insane with his Suicide Squad method stunt, but he is a wonderful actor from time to time. Requiem for a Dream changed my life, and he deserved everything for Dallas Buyer’s Club. Panic Room was solid work. American Psycho, Fight Club, both solid. Hell I even enjoyed Switchback as ridiculous as it was.
But Suic… never mind I’m leaving it alone.
Blade Runner 2 will open October 6, 2017, so that gives Jared Leto just enough time to get into character.
