Celebrity News: Measuring the words as if fearing to reveal a state secret, Ryan Gosling gave some clues to what is probably the most anticipated film this year, ‘Blade Runner 2049’, an enigmatic continuation of the cult classic futuristic directed by Ridley Scott in 1982.
Dressed light-heartedly, wearing a denim jacket, black pants, worn shoes, and a T-shirt from the legendary Trans-AMA North American motocross series, Gosling uncovered few secrets. In any case, and with little more than three months to its premiere, the legion of fans of the classic Dystopic of Scott receives any new detail of ‘Blade Runner 2049’ like the water of May, however trivial.
The militancy is tense because despite the promising of its trailer, presented at the beginning of May, and the solid guarantee offered by its director, Denis Villeneuve, does not know well what to expect from this review, given the iconic, referential and almost Legendary of the original. The film will be set 30 years after that historic November 2019, and that Gosling will play a blade runner who will find and ask for help from missing Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) to save the world from chaos, or something like that.
Gosling visited Barcelona in the company of Denis Villeneuve and two of the actresses of his excellent cast, Ana de Armas, and Sylvia Hoeks. The director, a brave man given the sensitive material in hand, admitted the risks of his mission. “I have little chance of success because nobody is going to see the film for what it is in itself, but in comparison with the original.” In any case, he does not seem worried: “I have been able to create the film with total freedom, without trying to please anyone. And if I have done it, it has been, above all, my love for the first film.”
“I cannot say anything about the plot, I can only say that it is a dramatic and beautiful story, which causes the same sense of suffocation as the first ‘Blade Runner,” acknowledged Sylvia Hoeks, who plays the right hand of charismatic replicator manufacturer Neander Wallace (Jared Leto). Will she be a replicant herself? Ana de Armas, on the other hand, is “the lover and the best friend” of Gosling, “to which it supports in its investigation and to the one that encourages to continue pursuing what it is chasing”. More shadows than lights.
Written by Hampton Fancher (author of the original screenplay with David Peoples) and by Michael Green (‘Logan’, ‘Alien: Covenant’), ‘Blade Runner 2049’ will premiere next October 6th.
