Interview: Roger Deakins on ‘Sicario’ and ‘Blade Runner 2’
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).

Earlier this summer, it was announced that 12-time Oscar-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins would be working on Blade Runner 2, a comforting thought for those who were skeptical about a sequel. Whether the film is good or bad, necessary or not, we at least know that Blade Runner 2 will look fantastic. Though we know that Deakins will reunite with his Sicario and Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve for the film, we still don’t know much about what this new Blade Runner will be. Our own Matt Singer caught up with Deakins (who’s at the Toronto International Film Festival promoting Sicario) and asked Deakins about the film who said the sequel is “definitely going to happen” and is an “entirely separate movie” from the 1982 original.
