Many people were annoyed / repulsed by reports of Jared Leto’s “method acting” on the set of Suicide Squad, but it looks like Denis Villeneuve wasn’t one of them. Leto has officially joined the cast of the Sicario director’s untitled Blade Runner sequel, which should surely test the paper-thin patience of Harrison Ford. In related news, feel free to place your bets now on which of Leto’s co-stars will be charged with assault before production ends.
Blade Runner 2
It’s a huge day for sneak peeks at upcoming films, but if you’re looking for something a little different (i.e. not Star Wars or superheroes or Dark Towers), we’ve got just the thing: Beautiful new concept art from Blade Runner 2, director Denis Villeneuve’s sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi masterpiece, which sees Harrison Ford returning to yet another iconic role for one of our most anticipated films of 2017.
Another week, another Blade Runner 2 casting update, and still nowhere closer to learning plot details from Denis Villeneuve’s sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi masterpiece. But we do have another great piece of casting, as Dutch star Sylvia Hoeks has joined Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright and more in the upcoming film. Although her specific role is unknown, Hoeks will be playing a leading role in the sequel, and since it doesn’t hit theaters until 2017, you have a bit of time to familiarize yourself with the acclaimed Dutch actress.
Knock Knock is a pretty terrible movie that not even Keanu Reeves could redeem — though it wasn’t entirely bad. One of the (very) few good things about Eli Roth’s 2015 thriller is Ana de Armas, the charming Cuban actress who made the film somewhat watchable. Luckily, her next project probably won’t need any help in that department, but it’s definitely a huge step up from her most recent roles.
It’s been over a year since Blade Runner 2 tapped Sicario director Denis Villeneuve to helm, with Ryan Gosling joining Harrison Ford in the long-developing sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic. With filming slated to begin this summer, the project is really starting to come together, with Robin Wright joining the cast as of yesterday, while today brings an interesting potential new addition: Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista.
Denis Villeneuve is set to begin filming Blade Runner 2 this summer, and as pre-production picks up steam, so do the casting announcements for the highly-anticipated project— which means this thing is absolutely happening. Robin Wright has joined Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford in the long-awaited sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic (and arguable masterpiece, depending on which version you’re watching), snatching up one of three major female roles in the film.
It’s still kind of hard to believe that all these years later, we’re finally getting a Blade Runner sequel. Even after they announced the project, even after they claimed people like Ryan Gosling and the original film’s star, Harrison Ford, were involved, it seemed like a pipe dream; the sort of thing people talk about online for years as a possibility that never actually materializes.
For a while it didn’t seem like Ridley Scott would ever make his long-promised (threatened?) sequel to Blade Runner, which suited most fans of the classic dystopian sci-fi flick just fine. But when director Denis Villeneuve and cinematographer Roger Deakins signed on, suddenly Blade Runner 2 was not only actually happening, but it sounded like a great idea. Although he was previously only rumored for a role in the sequel, Ryan Gosling is now confirming his part in the film, while Scott has offered details on what we might expect from the opening scene.
We had a chat with Roger Deakins last month, in which the famed cinematographer spoke briefly about re-teaming with Prisoners and Sicario director Denis Villeneuve for Blade Runner 2, the sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi masterpiece. Deakins couldn’t tell us too much, but he did get us a bit more excited about the upcoming sequel. Your excitement may vary based on the latest from Deakins, who reveals that Blade Runner 2 will probably be post-converted to 3D.
If you’ve watched a movie in the last 25 years and thought to yourself “God, this film looks great,” odds are it was shot by Roger Deakins. The master cinematographer of such modern classics as The Shawshank Redemption, No Country for Old Men, and Skyfall is considered the best director of photography working today by almost everyone on the planet (except the Academy, which has nominated him twelve different times but never given him an Oscar).
