There have been rumors about Ryan Gosling being a part of the much talked about Blade Runner sequel for a while, but today is the first time the actor has confirmed it.

His involvement of the film, which is set to be directed by Sicario helmer Denis Villeneuve was revealed during an interview for his upcoming film, the Big Short (Directed by Shane Black).

He was unable to say anything about the film, in fact, he went as far as to say that “there’s a chip in me and if I say anything more I’ll explode if I say anything else.” However, he did say that Villenueve’s involvement was a big part of why he signed on and that it will be the next film that he has scheduled to shoot.
