New concept art has been released for Blade Runner 2.
EW.com debuted the art along with comments from director Denis Villeneuve (Ridley Scott is on board as producer).
Villeneuve confirmed Blade Runner 2 “takes place several decades after the original. The setting is once again a future Los Angeles, albeit one that spreads over much of the West Coast.”
“The climate has gone berserk – the ocean, the rain, the snow is all toxic,” Villeneuve said.
The vehicle pictured in the concept art is described as kind of snow blower that hovers over the streets and destroys snow. “It’s a Canadian wet dream!” laughed Villeneuve.
Harrison Ford will be back for Blade Runner 2 who is also joined by Ryan Cosling. Regarding Ford’s Rick Deckard, Villeneuve offered ”he’s full of wisdom and good advice.”
“It’s a great team and spirits are very high,” Villenevue said. “Failure is not an option.”
The untitled Blade Runner sequel has an October 6, 2017 release also starring Robin Wright and Dave Bautista.
