Blade Runner 2049 Aiming For Hard R-Rating
Per Screen Daily, Villeneuve relayed that the science fiction movie will be one of the, if not the, “most expensive R-rated independent feature films ever made”, a fact that his producers love to remind him of:
The Canadian filmmaker also revealed that there was very little green screen during filming, which wrapped in late November.
“I can count on my fingers the amount of times we put a green screen on set,” said Villeneuve. “Most of the movie was done on camera, me and [cinematographer] Roger Deakins worked very hard to do it that way. My actors were not walking on green screens all day long. CGI is a strong tool for backgrounds and extensions but what is around the actors needs to be as real as possible. When I watch a movie that’s mostly CGI, I’m disengaged.”
Lastly, while expressing his love for sci-fi (he’s previously stated he would love to remake Dune), he teased that there could be the potential for even MORE sequels to Ridley Scott’s 1982 dystopian classic.
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos.
