Blade Runner 2: First Look
Blade Runner 2: Concept Art Reveal
Director: Denis Villeneuve
Release Date: October 6, 2017
Blade Runner 2 is currently in the filming stage of production, and some concept art has been revealed. The sequel adaptation is directed by Denis Villeneuve and written by Philip K. Dick, Ridley Scott, Hampton Fancher, and Michael Green. The original Blade Runner was directed by Ridley Scott in 1982.
In the futuristic year of 2019, Los Angeles has become a dark and depressing metropolis, filled with urban decay. Rick Deckard, an ex-cop, is a “Blade Runner”, who must try to terminate four replicants who stole a ship in space and have returned to Earth to find their creator.
There is not much to go on on the plot details as of yet. What is known is that the events Villeneuve’s sequel will take place several decades after Scott’s 1982 film. The director has confirmed some details with Entertainment Weekly:
The setting is once again a future Los Angeles, albeit one that spreads over much of the West Coast. “The climate has gone berserk – the ocean, the rain, the snow is all toxic,”
The vehicle pictured in this exclusive concept art from the sequel, Villeneuve says, is a kind of snow blower that hovers over the streets and destroys snow. He laughs. “It’s a Canadian wet dream!”
Harrison Ford will return as his lead role of “Rick Deckard”. Ryan Gosling will co-star with Harrison. The rest of cast includes Robin Wright, Ana de Armas, Dave Bautista, Mckenzie Davis, Barkhad Abdi, Sylvia Hoeks, David Dastmalchian, Carla Juri, and Hiam Abbass.
Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling will be an
interesting duo. Ford’s universal talent and Gosling’s exceptional talent will collaborate just fine. I am excited for Gosling, ever since his performance in Drive. He definitely has that edge that can help offset the film and be a compatible counterpart alongside Ford.
Blade Runner will release in theaters on October 6, 2017.
