    BLADE RUNNER 2049 Aiming for R Rating Confirms Denis Villeneuve


    [​IMG]

    Denis Villeneuve, the director of Blade Runner 2049, has revealed that the film-makers are aiming for an R-rating for the forthcoming Blade Runner sequel.

    Speaking to Screen Daily, Villeneuve also confirmed that the film wrapped shooting in late November and the editing process has now commenced in Los Angeles.

    “My producers are finding it fun to remind me that it will be one of the most expensive R-rated independent feature films ever made,” Villeneuve disclosed.

    During the interview, the director also spoke about his determination to make the film with as minimal CGI as possible, applying the same principal to the shoot that he had used for his most recent feature Arrival. “I can count on my fingers the amount of times we put a green screen on set. Most of the movie was done on camera, me and [cinematographer] Roger Deakins worked very hard to do it that way.

    “My actors were not walking on green screens all day long. CGI is a strong tool for backgrounds and extensions but what is around the actors needs to be as real as possible. When I watch a movie that’s mostly CGI, I’m disengaged,” he continued.

    While the editing process on Blade Runner 2049 has only recently begun, Villeneuve is already dreaming of working on further sci-fi features, an ambition he has harboured since he was a child. “I’m doomed, I love sci-fi. I have two more ideas now that I would love to do. [And] Blade Runner could go on… we’ll see how this one goes.”

    Warner Bros has set a US release date of October 6, 2017 for Blade Runner 2049.

    BLADE RUNNER Sequel Release Moved Up to October 6, 2017


    [​IMG]

    A couple months ago, it was reported that Blade Runner 2 was getting the unflattering release date of January 12, 2018. The MLK weekend is an odd place for a sci-fi sequel that brings Harrison Ford back to play one of his iconic roles opposite Ryan Gosling.

    January is a wasteland, and it seemed like Blade Runner 2 would be buried there before it even got a chance to get going. But now Alcon Entertainment has announced that Blade Runner 2 will have a far more friendly release date. The movie will now open on October 6, 2017.

    Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) recently was cast in the film. Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Prisoners) is directing. Cinematographer Roger Deakins will reunite with Villeneuve on the project. Principal photography is scheduled to begin July 2016.

    Ridley Scott Reveals the Opening Scene for BLADE RUNNER 2


    [​IMG]

    Around two or three years Ridley Scott ago revealed the opening shot of Blade Runner 2, which is based on the original opening that was scrapped from the 1982 sci-fi film. Scott recently participated in a discussion on filmmaking at the AFI Festival. Mtime attended the event, where the director elaborated on what to expect from the opening of Blade Runner 2:

    "We decided to start the film off with the original starting block of the original film. We always loved the idea of a dystopian universe, and we start off at what I describe as a "factory farm," what would be a flat land with farming. Wyoming. Flat, not rolling... you can see for 20 miles. No fences, just plowed, dry dirt. Turn around and you see a massive tree, just dead, but the tree is being supported and kept alive by wires that are holding the tree up. It's a bit like Grapes of Wrath, there's dust, and the tree is still standing."

    "By that tree is a traditional, Grapes of Wrath-type white cottage with a porch. Behind it at a distance of two miles, in the twilight, is this massive combine harvester that's fertilizing this ground. You've got 16 Klieg lights on the front, and this combine is four times the size of this cottage. And now a spinner [a flying car] comes flying in, creating dust. Of course, traditionally chased by a dog that barks, the doors open, a guy gets out and there you've got Rick Deckard."

    "He walks in the cottage, opens the door, sits down, smells stew, sits down and waits for the guy to pull up to the house to arrive. The guy's seen him, so the guy pulls the combine behind the cottage and it towers three stories above it, and the man climbs down from a ladder - a big man. He steps onto the balcony and he goes to Harrison's side. The cottage actually [creaks]; this guy's got to be 350 pounds. I'm not going to say anything else - you'll have to go see the movie."

    In the originally scripted opening scene, Deckard introduces himself, and then shoots "the man." The Blade Runner rips the jaw off the dead body, revealing it was a replicant he killed, not a human. Since this replicant in the sequel is going to be 350 pounds, and based on how Scott described the tension in the buildup, it'll probably lead to a fight sequence.

    Ridley Scott Confirms Deckard is a Replicant in BLADE RUNNER


    [​IMG]

    The debate surrounding Harrison Ford's Rick Deckard has now been raging for more than three decades, with Ford and director Ridley Scott famously on opposite sides. Scott has always maintained that Deckard, whose job is to hunt down and terminate replicants, is in fact one himself, and inserted the infamous unicorn scene into his 1992 director's cut as a gesture towards this.

    "He is definitely a replicant," Scott says. Scott goes on to explain how elements of the film should tip audiences off to this fact, if they're paying attention, including the unicorn dream sequence Scott added in his director's cut of the film.

    "I was moved to ask Ridley whether or not he thought that the character I was playing was a Replicant," Ford recalled at a 2013 AFI event. "Well, I never got a straight answer. Which is okay, I guess. But I thought it was important that the audience be able to have a human representative on screen, somebody that they could have an emotional understanding of. Ridley didn't think that was all that important."

    Ridley Scott Won't Direct Blade Runner 2; Harrison Ford's Role


    [​IMG]

    Ridley Scott's biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings will be showing in a few weeks and the filmmaker is busy prepping for his next film, the sci-fi thriller The Martian. In an interview with Variety, Ridley Scott revealed that while he won't be directing Blade Runner 2, it is poised to begin production next year. Scott now says he'll only be involved in the picture as a producer. However, he also let slip how Harrison Ford fits into the film's story.

    When The Martian wraps later this winter, Scott already has a fair idea what he'll be doing next, though it likely won't be the much-anticipated Blade Runner sequel he developed with the original film's co-screenwriter, Hampton Fancher. "We talked at length about what it could be, and came up with a pretty strong three-act storyline, and it all makes sense in terms of how it relates to the first one," says Scott, who adds that fans can expect to see Harrison Ford back in the saddle as the futuristic gumshoe Rick Deckard.

    "Harrison is very much part of this one, but really it's about finding him; he comes in in the third act." Per Scott, that Alcon Entertainment production should go before the cameras within the next year, but with someone else directing (he'll produce).

    Sony Pictures has landed international distribution rights for Alcon Entertainment’s Blade Runner sequel. Warner Bros. Pictures is distributing in North America and Canada through its output agreement with Alcon.

    Denis Villeneuve is directing the film, starring Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, who is reprising his role as Rick Deckard. Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original movie) and Michael Green have penned the original screenplay based on an idea by Fancher and Ridley Scott.

    The story takes place several decades after the conclusion of Scott’s iconic 1982 original — which was set in a 2019 Los Angeles, and based on the Philip K. Dick short story “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”

    The film marks Villenueve’s third collaboration with 13-time Oscar nominee Roger Deakins, who will serve as cinematographer, following Alcon’s Prisoners and Sicario, which brought Deakins his latest Oscar nomination.

    Principal photography on the yet-to-be-titled sequel is scheduled to begin in July.

    After watching the original again about a week ago, I hope this movie somehow gets caught up in production and ends up not getting made.

    Robin Wright in Final Talks to Join BLADE RUNNER Sequel


    [​IMG]

    House of Cards star Robin Wright is in final negotiations to star in Alcon Entertainment’s sequel to Blade Runner. The actress will join Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford in the sci-fi project, being directed by Denis Villeneuve, the acclaimed filmmaker behind drug drama Sicario.

    Other plot details are being kept under wraps, but it is known that the story takes place several decades after the conclusion of the 1982 original and that Ford is reprising his role as replicant hunter Rick Deckard.

    There are three major female roles, and Wright has nabbed one of them. The casting was rumored for weeks, but one thing that held up negotiations was Wright's schedule for the hit Netflix show. Wright is currently shooting Wonder Woman for Warner Bros.

    Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the original) and Michael Green wrote the new screenplay based on an idea by Fancher and Ridley Scott. Principal photography is scheduled to begin in July.
