The Walking Dead actor Lennie James is in talks to join the Blade Runner sequel, starring Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling.
Directed by Denis Villeneuve, the film also stars Robin Wright and Mackenzie Davis, reports variety.com .
Cinematographer Roger Deakins will reunite with Villeneuve on the project.
The sequel is set several decades after the original. It is written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green and succeeds the initial story by Fancher and David Peoples, which was based on Philip K Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep.
The plot details of the sequel are still under wraps.
Lennie James most recently portrayed James Brown's father Joseph Gardner Brown in the biopic Get on Up.
