‘Blade Runner 2’ News: Ridley Scott Reveals Details, Ryan Gosling Confirms Role
Hollywood heavyweight director Ridley Scott has revealed to the world what the opening scene of "Blade Runner 2" will look like. His description evokes the original opening scene of the first film, which was ultimately cut before the movie debuted.
Details of the opening sequence are a bit exciting for sci-fi fans and those who are dedicated to the universe Scott created back in 1982. Here is what Scott revealed to the press at the event.
"We decided to start the film off with the original starting block of the original film. We always loved the idea of a dystopian universe, and we start off at what I describe as a 'factory farm' -- what would be a flat land with farming. Wyoming. Flat, not rolling -- you can see for 20 miles. No fences, just plowed, dry dirt. Turn around and you see a massive tree, just dead, but the tree is being supported and kept alive by wires that are holding the tree up. It's a bit like Grapes of Wrath, there's dust, and the tree is still standing. By that tree is a traditional, Grapes of Wrath-type white cottage with a porch," the director said.
Scott then described the view beyond the cottage. In the distance there appears a massive combine, farm machinery that eclipses the size of the cottage. A flying car, called a "spinner," arrives and Rick Deckard gets out, goes into the cottage and sits down at the table. The man parks his combine harvester and joins Deckard in the house. The man is quite big, appearing to be 350 pounds, and the cottage creaks as he walks in under his weight.
The director ended his description there, teasing fans that they would have to see the movie for more.
In other news for the project, actor Ryan Gosling has now confirmed his role in the film, according to Collider.
Although Gosling was pretty tight-lipped about his role in the film, he did confirm his involvement, alongside the star of the original Harrison Ford and new director Denis Villeneuve ("Sicario"). The actor even joked that he had a chip inserted inside of him that would explode if he were to reveal too much information, a reference to the film's futuristic, dystopian theme.
The film is expected to go into production next summer. There have been no details yet about when it will open in theaters.
