PostSubject: Blade Runner 2    Sat Nov 05, 2011 7:03 am

http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2011/11/04/ridley-scott-says-he%E2%80%99ll-direct-%E2%80%98blade-runner%E2%80%99-sequel/

Assuming the film comes out in 2014, it'll take about 10 years for the sequel to become the cult hit that the first one eventually became by 1992, which means people (like me) won't "get it" until about 2024.

Has there ever been a sequel to a major movie franchise/series where none of the principal actors or actresses from the first film returned? Blade Runner 2 could be the first.

Blade Runner is one of my favourite films (in its original 1982 guise no less) but it's difficult to think of any film that needs a sequel less. Equally Ridley Scott is not the man he used to be, his more recent films don't have that creative vibe any more, much like revisiting Alien I feel he's kinda exhausted and casting about for ideas by plundering his past - something its difficult to believe are conducive to a good film. Does that sound bitter...because I really am ^^.

Good suggestions FourDot and JWild. In both cases none of the talent in front of or behind the camera was around for the sequel, and this is just my opinion, but SCARLETT was probably the more thankless of the two tasks. I don't think there was any way of replicating the magic of either first film. Joanne Whaley-Kilmer and Timothy Dalton were good, but there's just no way of coming close to Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable.

Though Ford won't be in the sequel, with modern technology he probably could be, though I have always thought he was the weakest part of Blade Runner.

Yeah, the fact that Scott is helming it makes things interesting. Although arguably Prometheus already falls into the same category.

If they're looking for a screenwriter... what's wrong with David Webb Peoples and his missus?

This is like the Top Gun sequel, in that it's coming so long after the first film one wonders what the fucking point is exactly.

Well, Top Gun and Basic Instinct are a little different. Blade Runner and Indiana Jones have fervent fanbases that weren't around for the original release.

Well, nobody was actually around for the original release of BLADE RUNNER (it didn't do that well at the box office).

Basic Instinct 2 was actually meant to come out much, much sooner than it actually did; the sequel was in the works fairly soon after the first film came out, but if I recall correctly, the studio or production team went bankrupt and the rights to the film went through litigation. In the meantime Stone made horrible career choices and alienated the public and Hollywood, thus putting a promising career into deep freeze. By the time Basic Instinct 2 came out, nobody gave a crap and she was too old to be playing a sexy killer.

I'm really surprised at the number of sequels that are being made to films that whose last entry in the series (or only entry) was decades ago. Maybe I shouldn't be all that surprised. Some sequels aren't necessarily a bad thing; like I think TRON:LEGACY was a decent attempt at making a better film than the original (which I always loved as a child but have never thought to be a great film). I'd like to see that remake of LOGAN'S RUN get off the ground (because I don't think the original was so great that it can't be remade) and I'd also like to see THE POWER OF THE DARK CRYSTAL eventually get made. But a sequel to a movie as unique and special as Blade Runner? Not so sure that we need it.

Eh, BLADE RUNNER is very from perfect. To be perfectly honest, it's a bit of a mess. A stunning looking mess nevertheless.

I referred to it as "special" and "unique". I agree it's not perfect. It's probably the equivalent dropping acid.

Return to Oz?
Was that promoted as a sequel to the musical adaption? I never thought of it as such when growing up but I know many critics and audiences hated it because it was too different from the technicolor romp. I think the only element they used from the musical was ruby slippers and they had to pay royalties just for that bit.

Fans have been waiting patiently for a mere 30 years now for director Ridley Scott to return to the sci-fi genre, and the wait will finally be over with the release of Prometheus this week. As if one Alien-connected return to the genre wasn’t enough, Scott is also developing a sequel to his 1982 classic Blade Runner. We know that the follow-up takes place “some years after the first film” and it was recently announced that the original pic’s writer, Hampton Fancher, has been brought on develop and write the sequel for Scott to direct.

Steve recently sat down with Scott to talk about Prometheus, but the director also shared a ridiculously exciting gift regarding the Blade Runner sequel: he described a full scene. In order to give us an idea of the visual style he’s planning for the follow-up, Scott took the opportunity to map out a scene from the project that could easily serve as the opening to the film. Hit the jump for more.

Steve began by asking Scott if he has already begun thinking about the visuals for the Blade Runner sequel, to which the director replied in the affirmative. Scott then proceeded to describe a scene from the in development project:

“There’ll be a vast farmland where there are no hedges or anything in sight, and it’s flat like the plains of—where’s the Great Plains in America? Kansas, where you can see for miles. And it’s dirt, but it’s being raked. On the horizon is a combine harvester which is futuristic with klieg lights, ‘cause it’s dawn. The harvester is as big as six houses. In the foreground is a small white clapboard hut with a porch as if it was from Grapes of Wrath. From the right comes a car, coming in about six feet off the ground being chased by a dog. And that’s the end of it, I’m not gonna tell you anything else.”

So, yeah, that happened. Scott is known for crafting some truly gorgeous visuals, and this scene from the Blade Runner sequel appears to be no exception. It’s important to note that the project is still in the early stages of development, so this scene could be vastly different or entirely scrapped when the actual film comes together, but given the nature of the scene and how detailed Scott was about it, I wouldn’t be shocked if this is the in-development opening sequence.

I highly encourage you to actually watch Scott describe the scene in the video below, as he paints a truly vivid picture and almost puts you on the edge of your seat. Look for Steve’s full interview with the filmmaker on the site very soon.

Let me guess the plot to Blade Runner 2:

Deckard and Rachel are both replicant (we all know by now Deckard is also a replicant - if you didn't know that by now, you haven't been paying attention these past 30 years).

They got together sometime after the end of Blade Runner; did some wild replicant shagging and had a baby boy.

The sequel is about their prodigal son who is now an adult and he unites all replicants in the universe and incites an uprising against humans a la Terminator Style.

Or, a similarly "original" plot: aforementioned replicant takes on some new, evil form of replicants and saves the humans from destruction.

If you've ever seen the original Sherman Labby storboards for the earliest version of BLADE RUNNER, when it was DANGEROUS DAYS and they were trying to get Dustin Hoffman, this sounds suspiciously like that abandoned opening.

Scotts left the director's chair, Huff Post (and many others) reports:

Quote :
Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Rick Deckard in a sequel to "Blade Runner." Alcon Entertainment announced the news in a press release, while also touting that Denis Villeneuve ("Prisoners") would replace Ridley Scott in the director's chair. Scott, who directed the acclaimed first film, is still on board as executive producer.

"We are honored that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve, who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on 'Prisoners,'" Alcon co-founders and co-CEO's Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said in a statement. "Hampton [Fancher] and Michael [Green], with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most universally celebrated films of all time, and we couldn't be more thrilled with this amazing, creative team." Fancher was the original film's co-writer.

Ford was officially offered the role back in May of last year. "We would be honored, and we are hopeful, that Harrison will be part of our project," Kosove and Johnson said at the time.

In December, Scott said Ford was excited about the project. "I sent him this [script] and he said it's the best thing he's ever read," Scott told MTV. "It's very relevant to what happened in the first one."

According to the press release, the story for the new film will pick up "several decades" after the conclusion of 1982's "Blade Runner." Production is expected to start in the summer of 2016.
