So, news concerning the “Blade Runner 2” movie floats around the net and here are some of the latest news.
- Ryan Gosling will (still in negotiations for doing the movie) be the central character and Ridley Scott has said that there might be additional sequels (with Gosling).
- Denis Villeneuve was not Ridley’s the first choice for doing the next Blade Runner movie, Ridley Scott whom has worked on a sequel for years got rejected when he offered the movie to his first choice on doing the movie.
- The movie will once and for all settle and show that Deckard are an Replicant
On the whole Deckard being a Replicant, Ridley Scott says
Of course he’s a bloody Replicant! He’s going to have to admit it… I’m not going to tell you [how the question of replicant expiration is addressed]. You’ll have to see the story. It’ll all make sense.
On getting rejected by his choice of director of “Blade Runner 2”
“I asked somebody before, who I though would be right – I would rather not say who it is. He just said ‘I’m not going to do that, I’m never going to follow through on that
According to BBC and Independent.co.uk domain names including bladerunnerandroidsdreammovie.com and androidsdreammovie.com have been registered by a company that has been used in the past by Warner Bros.
So, it seems like the upcoming Blade Runner movie will be entitled “Blade Runner: Androids Dream”. So far, not much is known about the project besides that Harrison Ford will be in the movie, Ryan Gossling is in negotiations to star in the movie and that will be directed by Denis Villeneuve, Roger Deakins will be the Cinematographer and the Screenplay is written by Hampton Fancher (Ridley Scott & Michael Green is credited with “Story” at IMDB)
Deadline has published a great interview with Ridley Scott in which he talks about how Star Wars got him to do Alien instead of Tristan & Isolde. This is a really interesting interview which also let’s us know how he’s makes some of the decisions he does when he films.
The reason to why he’s not directing the next Blade Runner seems to be having or wanting to continue working on the next Prometheus film.
DEADLINE: Why didn’t you direct the sequel?
SCOTT: Alcon bought the title, and asked if I had any ideas. I did. So fundamentally it’s my essay about what happens and what the film is about. I was going to get writers, but decided to call up my old buddy Hampton Fancher because he walks the walk and talks the talk, albeit in these awful sandals. We came up with a nice tight target. He said he wouldn’t write the screenplay, but wrote a short novel. This was one of the writers I had the best experience with, on the original Blade Runner, meeting him every day, polishing the script. We’d solve one problem and there would be another. It drove him crazy but what happened is that what started off as a small contained play inside an apartment, and into an epic. The new one, we’ve got a very good director in Denis Villenueve. He has taken my script, from Hampton and Michael Green, and that’s what he’ll make. I can’t direct them all, and I have to do Prometheus.
