HOLLYWOOD – LaLa Land star Ryan Gosling insists that Blade Runner 2 will not be a musical.

He sings and dances up a storm in LaLa Land but Ryan Gosling stated explicitly today that the new Blade Runner 2 movie will not be a sequel.

Speaking EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec, Gosling said:

It’s crazy. You do one musical and suddenly everyone thinks that’s all you can do. I spoke for a long time with Denis Villeneuve, our director, and we both agreed that the tone of Blade Runner 2 had to be consistent with the original film. And that kind of precludes big song and dance numbers.

So no songs at all then?

I didn’t say that. There won’t be a big choreographed musical scene but I can hold a tune so we do have one or two songs throughout the film. For instance, I’m singing the theme song Blade Running through Tears in Rain.

Blade Runner 2 will be released in 2018.
