Roger Deakins To Go Behind The Camera For Denis Villenueve's Blade Runner 2
I really, really disliked Roger Deakins and Denis Villenueve's last collaboration Prisoners, but it sure was pretty to look at!
Herein lies my dilemma: they're now teaming up for Blade Runner 2. The original Blade Runner is one of my favorite films of all time, and Deakins is easily one of the best cinematographers working today, if not THE best. That long line of wonderful Coen Bros' films that he served as DP on can attest to that, along with some stellar work on movies like Skyfall and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.
I guess I'm going to have to see another Villenueve flick in hopes that he'll actually produce something worth watching. Their most recent collaboration, Sicario, hasn't hit theaters yet but is receiving generally good reviews on the festival circuit.
This new sequel to the 1982 dystopian classic will star Harrison Ford and, according to reports, possibly Ryan Gosling.
