It’s still unknown if Harrison Ford will return for Indiana Jones V, but the 73-year-old actor will revisit one of his most iconic characters in Blade Runner 2. The sequel to the 1982 sci-fi masterpiece is officially set to start filming in July this year.

In addition to Ford returning as Rick Deckard, Ryan Gosling will also star in the Blade Runner sequel. Ridley Scott will act as an executive producer, but will not direct the followup to his original classic. Instead, Denis Villeneuve of Sicario will helm the project. However, Hampton Fancher will be back to co-write the screenplay along with Michael Green.

It’s unknown when the untitled Blade Runner film will hit theaters, but a 2017 release is likely. Until then, we can currently see Harrison Ford reprising another career-defining role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
