‘Blade Runner 2′ a go with Harrison Ford confirmed, Denis Villenueve to direct

27 February 2015 8:23 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ridley Scott nostalgia is having an awful good week. Back in November there were talks that a sequel to Blade Runner, Scott’s 1982 sci-fi masterpiece, was in the works, but that Scott would be unable to direct due to schedule conflicts with Prometheus 2.

Now however, a replacement has been found in Denis Villeneuve, Oscar winning director of Incendies, Prisoners and Enemy. Variety reports that the French-Canadian director is currently in talks, but that Harrison Ford, after calling the script, “the best thing he’s ever read“, is officially on board.

Ford of course is returning to the Star Wars franchise while Villeneuve, whose crime drama Sicario is set to arrive later this year, is an unusual choice for such a franchise as he’s never really directed sci-fi, or for that matter action.

Scott however is set to produce the film with Alcon Entertainment’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson. »

Harrison Ford Officially Returns to 'Blade Runner,' New Director Named

27 February 2015 2:35 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's a good day to be a replicant: "Blade Runner," one of the most beloved and highly influential science fiction films of all time, will finally be getting its long-discussed sequel, set to shoot in the summer of 2016. And what's more - Harrison Ford will be back as futuristic private eye Rick Deckard in a story set "several decades" after the original film.

And, to add icing onto the cake, the producers have picked out probably the best filmmaker for this material not named Ridley Scott (and depending on your thoughts on Scott's return to the "Alien" franchise, "Prometheus," this could be a better choice) - "Prisoners" filmmaker Denis Villeneuve. In short: this movie is going to be awesome.

The press release laid out several more details, including that the screenplay for the new film was written by Michael Green and Hampton Fancher (who co-wrote the original film), from a »

Warner Bros.

 

Regardless of whether he liked the first film or not, something in Harrison Ford’s programming has swayed him to sign up for the long discussed Blade Runner 2, following an official statement from the studio (via Deadline).

Blade Runner Sequel Director Announced, Harrison Ford’s Return Confirmed

26 February 2015 7:08 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After all these years, the story of Rick Deckard will continue. A Blade Runner sequel started to pick up steam back in 2011 when it was announced that Ridley Scott would return to direct. While Scott is still creatively involved, it has been revealed that he'll be passing the torch to another director. What is still a big surprise, even after his involvement in the latest Star Wars film, is that Harrison Ford is set to reprise his role as Deckard:

Blade Runner Sequel Confirmed, Harrison Ford To Return

26 February 2015 6:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline is reporting that at long last, the Blade Runner sequel has been confirmed, with Harrison Ford set to reprise his role as Rick Deckard. Unfortunately, Ridley Scott will not return as director, but in his place will be Prisoners helmer Denis Villeneuve.

The plan is for production to get underway in summer 2016 with Hampton Fancher (who co-wrote the original) and Michael Green penning the script. Plot details are, of course, scarce, but from what we understand the sequel will take place several decades after the events of the original (which makes sense given Ford’s age).

“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 Entertainment’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said. “Hampton and Michael, with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most »

'Prisoners' & 'Enemy' Director Denis Villeneuve To Helm 'Blade Runner' Sequel, Harrison Ford Confirmed To Return

26 February 2015 6:05 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It has been a slow build to the "Blade Runner" sequel. As recently as December, Ridley Scott wasn't sure if he was going to return to helm the followup to his science fiction masterpiece. Although we know now that he isn't going to direct the sequel, we couldn't be happier with his replacement. Alcon Entertainment has announced that Oscar-nominee Denis Villeneuve —whose excellent resumé includes "Incendies," "Prisoners," and "Enemy"— will direct the sequel. Furthermore, Harrison Ford is officially confirmed to return, reprising his role as Deckard. And while story details are scare, a press release reveals that the followup will take place several decades after the events of the first film. At one time, Scott tossed around the idea that the worlds of "Blade Runner" and "Alien" might be connected —which is a pretty terrible idea that we hope screenwriters Hampton Fancher and Michael Green have »

Denis Villeneuve in Talks to Direct 'Blade Runner' Sequel

26 February 2015 5:50 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The idea of a Blade Runner sequel just got a hell of a lot more interesting. Alcon Entertainment, the studio producing the sc-fi followup, announced via press release that director Denis Villeneuve -- known for the Oscar-nominated war drama Incendies and tantalizing thrillers Prisoners and Enemy -- is currently in talks to direct the film from a script by Hampton Fancher (Blade Runner) and Michael Green ("Heroes"). The screenplay is based on an idea by Fancher, who co-wrote Blade Runner with David Peoples, and Ridley Scott, who directed the original and will executive produce the sequel. In addition, Harrison Ford will reprise his role from the original film as Rick Deckard, a cop who specializes in terminating human clones called replicants. Up until about an hour ago, the idea of a Blade Runner sequel did pretty much nothing for me, but with Villeneuve in negotiations to take over the director's chair, »

‘Mommy’ Review: Xavier Dolan’s Latest Wavers Between Powerful and Exasperating

23 January 2015 9:02 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It’s hard not to empathize with this troubled teen and his equally mercurial mother, but the writer-director undercuts his characters by wallowing in classist squalor

The artist shows us the world and demands that we face its injustices and explore our own role in perpetuating them. The brat, meanwhile, sulks in his room and grumbles, “The world sucks, man.”

Writer-director Xavier Dolan wears both hats in his latest film, “Mommy,” which wavers between gritty, poignant drama and a wallow in how much it sucks to be poor and to wear unattractive clothes. (It’s the same kind of classist »

Movie Review – Enemy (2013)

2 January 2015 10:17 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Enemy, 2013.

Directed by Denis Villeneuve.

Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Mélanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon and Isabella Rossellini.

Synopsis:

A university lecturer seeks out his exact double after seeing him in a movie.

Taking its cue from a José Saramago novel, Enemy is a film that further displays evidence of Denis Villeneuve’s extraordinary ability to tackle essential psychological and philosophical concepts in compelling and provocative fashion. Following the flawed but ambitious first English language feature Prisoners and the incredible political/fantastic mind-map of Incendies, this film should confirm the Québec born Villeneuve’s status as one of cinema’s most in-demand directors…

Telling the richly metaphoric and symbolic journey of university lecturer Adam (Gyllenhaal) as he feels the pressures of a failing relationship with Mary (Laurent) and a studious but uneventful life, in many ways Enemy shows us a look beyond the mirror. Recommended a movie rental by a work colleague, Adam »
