Oscar-winner Ridley Scott (Alien, Gladiator) is currently serving as producer for the upcoming sequel to his critically-acclaimed 1982 sci-fi thriller Blade Runner. The new film will be directed by Dennis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario) and will feature original star Harrison Ford (The Fugitive, Star Wars: The Force Awakens), reprising his role as Rick Deckard, alongside newcomer Ryan Gosling (Drive, The Big Short). The original Blade Runner took place in 2019 Los Angeles, a now dark and desperate metropolis that’s overrun with crime and urban decay. The Blade Runners are responsible for assassinating ‘replicants,’ androids made to look like humans but displaying no sign of human emotion. Rick Deckard comes in when he is assigned to track down four replicants responsible for a mutiny on the Off World colony, but as he tracks them down, he encounters another replicant, Rachel, that displays human emotion, and throws Deckard into a spiral of uncertainty as he continues to pursue the leader of the replicant mutineers. The original film was based on the novel by Philip K. Dick and was adapted for the screen by Scott and Hampton Fancher (The Mighty Quinn, The Minus Man). So far it looks Fancher will return to co-write the new film with Scott and screenwriter Michael Green (Green Lantern, Gotham). Warner Bros. just announced this week that the film will be scheduled for release on January 12th, 2018. Stay tuned for more updates.
The new biographical drama Truth, which details the 60 Minutes episode in 2004 that investigated President George W. Bush’s military service, and the subsequent criticism that led to news anchor Dan Rather and his producer Mary Mapes loosing their jobs and effectively ending their careers, is opening in theaters this Friday, October 16th. Screenwriter James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man) will be making his directorial debut with Truth, which he also adapted from Mary Mapes book. Starring in the two title roles are Oscar winners Robert Redford (All The President’s Men, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) and Cate Blanchett (The Aviator, Blue Jasmine), with Topher Grace (In Good Company, Interstellar), Dennis Quaid (Vantage Point, The Day After Tomorrow), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, Get Him To The Greek), Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek, I Robot), and Dermont Mulroney (About Schmidt, The Grey). The trailer is available here on MADE. Given the talent backing up this screenplay I would expect that this will definitely be worth seeing. Enjoy!
