Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, who has received 2 Oscar nominations for his previous work including a Golden Globe-winning score for The Theory of Everything will be composing the music for the sequel to Blade Runner.
In an interview on RÚV Icelandic national radio station, Jóhannsson confirmed that he had signed on to the film a long time ago.
Jóhannsson has a lot to live up to, the score for the original Blade Runner composed by Vangelis is not only iconic, but among Blade Runner fans is often considered to be the greatest of all time.
