I will watch anything that Denis Villeneuve does. Sicario, Enemy, and Prisoners are my fucking shiiittt!!! So, having him on-board gets me excited for any project, and it *at least* assuages my trepidation about a Blade Runner sequel. A bit.
We don’t need Blade Runner 2. But really, we seldom need a sequel. So instead I’m going to focus on the positive aspects of Blade Runner 2. Cyberpunk. Denis Villeneuve. Ryan Gosling.
Cinematographer Roger Deakins is going to be rocking the Blade Runner sequel, and the world will be better for it. Recently Deakins was talking about the film, and revealed that the movie will be a standalone movie.
Fuck, man. How am I not supposed to be excited about Blade Runner 2: Unnecessary Sequel? Ryan Gosling. Denis Villeneuve. And now Roger Deakins.
First the Force Awakens‘ second trailer blew my cocktip off. And now, no sooner have I reattached it with congealed Diet Dew and shoestring, does this glorious news come out.
Call me a replicant and send me to work in the Salt Mines upon Planet Priapism. With one gnarly directorial acquisition the people behind Blade Runner 2: Han Solo’s Revenge have gotten me to care about the movie.
According to Ridley Scott, Harrison Ford found the Blade Runner 2 script the “best thing ever omfg wow!” or something. ‘Cause like, you know Scott would totally report, “I sent him the script and he found it to be cindering dog shit.”
Ridley Scott really hasn’t done much for me since 1999, and he certainly didn’t do anything for me with Prometheus. So while I’m stoked that he isn’t directing Blade Runner 2, I’m sort of bummed it exists at all. Though, who knows. Maybe fresh blood, fresh take, fresh batch of enjoyment? #KeepinThatPMA
Just how many of Harrison Ford’s defining projects is the good sir going to return to? He’s doing Star Wars, he’s been hankering for Indiana Jones, and now he’s being offered the reins to Blade Runner 2.
