Talk about visionary! The BLADE RUNNER sequel is barely in production, but that doesn't stop Ridley Scott from having entire scenes meticulously planned out in his mind. During a recent chat with Collider, the director was asked if he had already begun thinking about the visuals for the upcoming movie. In response, Scott painted a vivid picture of a scene that may or may not appear in the finished film:
"There’ll be a vast farmland where there are no hedges or anything in sight, and it’s flat like the plains of—where’s the Great Plains in America? Kansas, where you can see for miles. And it’s dirt, but it’s being raked. On the horizon is a combine harvester which is futuristic with klieg lights, ‘cause it’s dawn. The harvester is as big as six houses. In the foreground is a small white clapboard hut with a porch as if it was from Grapes of Wrath. From the right comes a car, coming in about six feet off the ground being chased by a dog. And that’s the end of it, I’m not gonna tell you anything else."
Wow. It's not often that we get a glimpse into the imagination of such an acclaimed filmmaker this early into the project's development. Between this and the news of the original scribe Hampton Fancher penning the script (not to mention a potential appearance by Harrison Ford), I can feel the hype rising for the follow-up to Scott's 1982 sci-fi classic. Whenever the hell we're going to actually see it.
