But that wasn’t the case. Logan received a historic nod for Best Adapted Screenplay, but Wonder Woman was spurned by the Oscars. However, things may change when next year’s Academy Awards roll around.

christopher nolan blade runner 2049

Read any Christopher Nolan interview and he’ll probably go on at length about how big an influence Blade Runner plays on his films. Shades of Ridley Scott’s seminal sci-fi classic can be found in everything from his superhero starter film Batman Begins to his ambitious and cerebral Interstellar.

But those rumors soon fell by the wayside when director Denis Villeneuve stepped up to the plate, delivering 2017’s stunning and audacious Blade Runner 2049. Nolan released Dunkirk last year instead. But don’t go thinking about “what might have been.” Apparently, Nolan would never want to direct a Blade Runner movie if he could help it.
