Fans of director Denis Villeneuve and cinematographer Roger Deakins are undoubtedly stoked for Blade Runner 2049, the upcoming sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi epic. Those same fans probably wouldn’t mind if either of those guys made a movie that clocked in at almost three hours long. Blade Runner 2049 might be putting that theory to the test, as Villeneuve’s latest film is rumored to have the longest runtime of any blockbuster since Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.
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.
