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)
12 time Oscar nomineted cinematographer Roger Deakins reunites with Denis Villeneuve on “Blade Runner 2”0
12-time Oscar-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins will reteam with director Denis Villeneuve on Alcon Entertainment’s sequel to “Blade Runner,” Alcon co-founders and co-CEOs Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson announced Wednesday.
Roger Deakins (Shawshank Redemption, No Country For Old Men, Skyfall, True Grit, “O Brother, Where Art Thou”) whom has worked with Denis Villeneuve on “Prisoners” & “Sicario” will once again work together in the still untitled Blade Runner sequel
The “Blade Runner” sequel is scheduled to start principal photography next summer. The story takes place several decades after the conclusion of the original 1982 movie. Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Rick Deckard.
Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original) and Michael Green have written the screenplay based on an idea by Fancher and Ridley Scott, who directed the original adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”
“Roger is an extraordinary talent and we are very excited that Denis and Roger have chosen to continue their collaboration in bringing the sequel to ‘Blade Runner’ to the big screen,” Kosove and Johnson said in a joint statement.
Roger Deakins is represented by ICM Partners.
Toronto Star Newspaper has put Denis Villeneuve thru a small Q&A (or “Their own Voight-Kammpf test” as they prefer to call it) about the still untitled Blade Runner sequel.
One of the three questions is why he will do a sequel to Blade Runner
Many sci-fi fans are saying that no one should attempt to make a sequel to Blade Runner, after all these years. What do you say to them?
You know what? To be honest, I had the same reaction at the beginning. For me, Blade Runner is a cult movie. It’s really one of my favourite films of all time. I’m a big sci-fi addict and that movie is by far one of my favourites if not my favourite, with 2001: A Space Odyssey.
So when they said they were doing a sequel I said, “That is a fantastic, genius and maybe bad idea.” I was very excited, but at the same time a bit afraid. And when I got the chance to read the script, I understood. Ridley Scott (now producer) and Hampton Fancher(original co-writer, now co-producer) came with a very strong idea and a very exciting one. Honestly, I think that the fans will agree with me. It’s really a strong movie.
There is also the question if Harrison Ford will play Deckard again or if he will have a major role. It seems like Denis cannot tell us anything about if Deckard will be back but he let’s us know that Harrison Ford is recovering and that he’ll be okey.
My guess (the only one that works if you ask me) is that Harrison Ford will be back, playing the character that Deckard was based upon (since Deckard was a Replicant according to Ridley Scott). Let’s see if my guess will be correct 🙂
Denis Villeneuve whom is set to direct “Blade Runner 2” let’s us know in an interview with The National Post just how much he likes Blade Runner which happens to be just why he want’s to do the still untitled “Blade Runner 2” film
I’m ready to do it because the original Blade Runner is by far one of my favourite movies of all time.
Blade Runner is almost a religion for me.
