Alcon Entertainment co-founders and co-CEOs Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson announced that 12-time Academy Award-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins will join director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Incendies) on the sequel to Blade Runner.

Deakins, who will be presented with the Pierre Angénieux Excellens in Cinematography award at the Cannes Film Festival on May 22, will reteam with Villeneuve on what will be their third feature collaboration, having previously worked together on Alcon’s Prisoners, starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal as well as Villeneuve’s upcoming film Sicario, a drug-trafficking drama starring Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro from Black Label Media, which is in competition at the Cannes Film Festival.

Deakins received his latest Academy Award nomination this year for his work on Angelina Jolie‘s Unbroken. He was previously nominated for Joel and Ethan Coen‘s Fargo, The Man Who Wasn’t There, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, No Country for Old Men and True Grit; Frank Darabont‘s The Shawshank Redemption; Martin Scorsese‘s Kundun; Andrew Dominik‘s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford; Stephen Daldry‘s The Reader, which he shared with Chris Menges; and, more recently, Prisoners and Sam MendesSkyfall.

The Blade Runner sequel is scheduled to start principal photography in summer of 2016. Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original) and Michael Green have written the original screenplay based on an idea by Fancher and Ridley Scott. The story takes place several decades after the conclusion of the 1982 original. Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Rick Deckard.
