Based on characters in Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? the story for Blade Runner 2049 was conceived by co-screenwriter Hampton Fancher. Set 30 years after the original film, Officer K (Ryan Gosling) is a new LAPD blade runner who unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. His discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who’s been missing for 30 years. Blade Runner 2049 is a USA-UK-Hungary-Canada co-production.
