There are a number of movies which I am looking forward to, as mentioned in my old blog. This post contains an update about them.
The first is the Blade Runner sequel. We don’t know when this will start filming (never mind having a release date) but we do know that:
- Harrison Ford will be in it (probably a fairly small role)
- Ridley Scott will be a producer
- Ryan Gosling will star
- Denis Villeneuve will direct
- Hampton Fancher will return to do the script
- Sean Young will not be in it
BR is one of my all-time-favourite movies. So I’m pretty excited.
Here is a good article which includes a video where Scott confirms that Deckard is a replicant (Ford is on record as saying that he is not). Since we’re going to see a much older Deckard it seems unlikely that he is!
The second movie which I mentioned previously is the one based on Satori which is an authorised sequel to my favourite book: Shibumi by Trevanian. This is supposed to star for Leonardo DiCaprio. Unfortunately these is no update on this in IMDB.
The third is “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny” which I mentioned in my old blog (the title has changed a little since then). I am including the trailer for this below. The bad news is that there seems to be some pretty dodgy CG work. The good (and surprising to me) news is that the movie will be released on Netflix on the 26th of Feb. So we don’t have to wait much longer!
