‘Blade Runner 2049’: Ryan Gosling Says Director Denis Villeneuve Was ‘Loyal’ To The Original Film

Blade Runner
This fall, Blade Runner 2049 will transport audiences back to the world Ridley Scott created in the original Blade Runner film in 1982. While most audiences are excited about the upcoming sequel, there are those who are concerned that the new film may not be able to live up to the reputation of the first one, which is considered by many to be one of the greatest science-fiction films ever produced. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter at a photocall while attending CinemaEurope, star Ryan Gosling offered some reassuring words while discussing the legacy of the original film.

Gosling explained why he believes the original Blade Runner resonates with audiences and hinted that some mysteries from the first film may finally be resolved:

“It’s iconic for a reason. It’s a very deep and powerful and haunting film. It leaves you with more questions than answers and, as a kid, I wasn’t used to that. I was used to things being sewn up for me. It was exciting as a fan to know that some of those questions might get answered, and to go back into that universe and explore that world and see how things evolved.”

Gosling also indicated that director Denis Villeneuve will retain elements of what made the first film a success while adding his own vision to the sequel:

“[He was] so loyal to the original, but at the same time wasn’t intimidated by it.”
