WWE wrestler Dave Bautista posted a perplexing message on social media in connection to the ‘Blade Runner 2’.

The wrestler-turned-actor took to Facebook to tease he’ll be joining the film.

Bautista posted a photograph of himself holding the origami unicorn from the first film, and wrote: “I can’t wait to share some really exciting news…” Check back here for the official announcement soon!

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Golden Globe winner Robin Wright was in in final talks to join the cast of Blade Runner 2.

Denis Villeneuve is directing the film, with principal photography scheduled to begin this July. Blade Runner 2 will be released by Warner Bros. in North America on January 12, 2018. Sony Pictures Releasing International will distribute in all overseas territories in all media.

Blade Runner 2 (which has still not announced its official title) is set several decades after the 1982 original. Harrison Ford will reprise his iconic role as Rick Deckard alongside Ryan Gosling.

The film is written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, and succeeds the initial story by Fancher and David Peoples based on Philip K. Dick’s novel ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’.

Bautista is currently reprising his role as Drax the Destroyer in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. He can next be seen in the Melissa McCarthy comedy The Boss, in addition to Kickboxer Vengeance with Jean-Claude Van Damme and Gin Carno.

US judge dismisses Taylor Swift ‘Shake It Off’ copyright lawsuit

LOS ANGELES — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit accusing singer Taylor Swift of stealing lyrics for her song ‘Shake It Off’ on Tuesday ruling the phrases in question were not sufficiently original to merit copyright protection.

Songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler brought the suit last fall, arguing that the chorus of the song borrowed from their 2001 composition, ‘Playas Gon’ Play’.

In his ruling, Judge Michael W Fitzgerald held that combining the phrases, ‘Playas gonna play’ and ‘haters gonna hate,’ does not entail sufficient originality to warrant copyright protection, Variety reported.

Swift’s 2014 song reached No 1 on the pop charts and marked her evolution from country to pop music.

Swift’s lyrics from the chorus of ‘Shake It Off’ are, ‘the players gonna play, play, play, play, play, and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.’

Attorneys for Swift asked US District Judge Michael Fitzgerald in January to dismiss the case.

“In order for such short phrases to be protected under the Copyright Act, they must be more creative than the lyrics at issue here,” Fitzgerald ruled, according to court papers.

The songwriters who sued Swift did not allege Swift’s song stole musical elements, the judge said, and phrases about players and haters existed in pop culture before 2001.
