Blade Runner 2049 ,Officer K (Ryan Gosling), a new blade runner for the Los Angeles Police Department, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. His discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who’s been missing for 30 years.
This is the sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic, directed by Ridley Scott and based on Philip K Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?, starring Harrison Ford as a “blade runner”, a futureworld cop whose job is to track down and kill disobedient almost-human androids known as replicants. The 2017 follow-up simply couldn’t be any more of a triumph: a stunning enlargement and improvement.
Development of a sequel to Blade Runner began in 1999: British filmmaker Stuart Hazeldine had written a sequel based on K.W. Jeter‘s novel The Edge of Human, titled Blade Runner Down, however the project was shelved due to concerns around the rights to the novel
Ridley Scott, who had directed the original film, considered developing a sequel, tentatively titled Metropolis, and stated his interest while attending San Diego Comic Con in 2007. Co writer Travis Adam Wright worked with producer Bud Yorkin for several years on the project. His colleague John Glenn, who had left the project by 2008, stated the script would explore the nature of the off-world colonies as well as what happens to the Tyrell Corporation in the wake of its founder’s death.
