“You’re a cop,” Ford questions his successor, adding, “I had your job once.”
“What happened?” responds Gosling, before being told, “We were being hunted!”
“2049” was directed by Denis Villeneuve and stars Barkhad Abdi, Ana de Armas, Dave Bautista, Mackenzie Davis, Lennie James, Jared Leto, Edward James Olmos, and Robin Wright, in addition to Ford and Gosling.
Hampton Fancher and Michael Green wrote the screenplay, which follows the initial story by Fancher and David Peoples, based on Philip K. Dick’s novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” Ridley Scott’s original movie — set in Los Angeles in 2019 — followed Ford’s Deckard, who pursued replicants that had escaped from an off-world colony.
Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble of Thunderbird Films will serve as executive producers alongside Scott and Bill Carraro. Sony Pictures is co-financing the movie with Alcon Entertainment and will distribute it overseas.
