Dave Bautista, who starred in Guardians of the Galaxy as Drax the Destroyer, will be joining the upcoming sequel to Blade Runner. This comes just days after Robin Wright was added to the cast.


Bautista made the announcement via Instagram:


We’re starting to come to terms with the fact that the film is actually happening, and with casting choices like this, we’re getting a bit more intrigued.

Blade Runner 2 is slated for release on January 12, 2018.

Andrew Liptak is the former Weekend editor of io9/Gizmodo. He is the co-editor of War Stories: New Military Science Fiction and hails from Vermont.

I’m really glad Dave Bautista is a super nice guy. Otherwise, I would fear for the safety of those around him as he appears to be able to crush human skulls with the same ease as a cat popping balloons.
