the opening of blade runner 2

Blade Runner 2 is aiming to shoot this summer. Years ago the sequel didn’t sound like such a great idea, especially after some Alien fans felt burnt by Ridley Scott‘s return to the Alien universe, Prometheus. Once Scott stepped out of the director’s chair for Blade Runner 2, replaced by director Denis Villeneuve (Sicario), the sequel gained more interest from fans. Not all fans, of course, but nobody should write off seeing the third collaboration between Villeneuve and cinematographer Roger Deakins, especially after Sicario.

Still, Scott remains heavily involved in the project, and once again, he’s teasing the sequel’s opening sequence.

Blade Runner 2

Ridley Scott has been working on the script for Blade Runner 2 for a couple years. It’s a script Scott has said original Blade Runner star Harrison Ford called the best he’s ever had when Scott delivered it to him a while back. While Scott is not directing the sequel to his 1982 science fiction landmark — that duty falls to Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Enemy) — he is producing and in general overseeing and guiding the movie.

Ridley Scott is out promoting The Martian now, which gives people the opportunity to bring up Blade Runner 2. Speaking about the sequel, Scott insists that part of the story is Rick Deckard, Ford’s original character, owning up to the fact that he is a replicant. The movie also features Ryan Gosling, and Scott suggests that part of the plan now is to hand things off to Gosling for additional sequels. Read More »
