Villeneuve Talks ‘Blade Runner 2’ Pressure


Here’s another reminder that Blade Runner 2 is actually a thing.  Director Denis Villeneuve has been talking about the pressures of filming a sequel to such an iconic movie.

“First of all, it’s not possible to live up to the original. It’s Ridley Scott. It’s a masterpiece. It’s one of the best sci-fi films, one of the best films in the past 50 years. For me, what terrorizes me right now is what I’m doing is taking Blade Runner and making it my own, and that is horrific. To realize that when I look at the dailies, it’s not Ridley Scott, it’s me, and that it’s different. It’s still the same universe, we are still in the same dream, but it’s mine, so it’s like I have no idea how you people will react, I don’t know. It has its own life.”

He is of course the director of Sicario and Prisoners, two good movies.  Harrison Ford,  Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Lennie James, and Jared Leto star in the movie, set for an October 6th 2017 release date.
