There’s a lot of excitement surrounding the upcoming sequel to Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner - not least because Harrison Ford will be returning.

Both Scott and the film’s studio Warner Bros. have managed to remain tight lipped in regards detail of the sequel to the cult hit - but they may have just accidentally let slip the film’s name.

Two web domains have been registered in the last two days - and - by a company long used by Warner Bros., according to the BBC.

This has lead speculators to believe the film will be called caller either Blade Runner: Androids Dream or simply Androids Dream.

What makes this seem like a very likely choice of name is that the 1968 novel by Philip K Dick on which the film was based was called Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Details have been few and far between on the sequel but Ryan Gosling has been attached to play an undisclosed role, while Denis Villeneuve will be directing - not Scott, who will remain as a producer.
