Any apprehension fans may have towards a sequel to the 1982 sci-fi flick Blade Runner may have eased, as Ridley Scott, producer of the follow-up, detailed its opening scene during an appearance at the AFI festival in Los Angeles.
Speaking to the crowd (via Slash Film), Scott revealed that the opening scene of Blade Runner 2 will be the same one originally imagined, but eventually scrapped for the first movie, more than three decades ago.
“We decided to start the film off with the original starting block of the original film,” Scott said before elaborating on what to expect when you see the sequel in theaters.
“We always loved the idea of a dystopian universe, and we start off at what I describe as a ‘factory farm’ – what would be a flat land with farming. Wyoming. Flat, not rolling – you can see for 20 miles. No fences, just plowed, dry dirt,” he detailed.
“Turn around and you see a massive tree, just dead, but the tree is being supported and kept alive by wires that are holding the tree up. It’s a bit like Grapes of Wrath, there’s dust, and the tree is still standing. By that tree is a traditional, Grapes of Wrath-type white cottage with a porch. Behind it at a distance of two miles, in the twilight, is this massive combine harvester that’s fertilizing this ground. You’ve got 16 Klieg lights on the front, and this combine is four times the size of this cottage.”
Painting a vivid picture of the opening sequence, Scott continued, “And now a spinner [a flying car] comes flying in, creating dust. Of course, traditionally chased by a dog that barks, the doors open, a guy gets out and there you’ve got Rick Deckard. He walks in the cottage, opens the door, sits down, smells stew, sits down and waits for the guy to pull up to the house to arrive. The guy’s seen him, so the guy pulls the combine behind the cottage and it towers three stories above it, and the man climbs down from a ladder – a big man. He steps onto the balcony and he goes to Harrison’s side. The cottage actually [creaks]; this guy’s got to be 350 pounds.”
Scott wouldn’t spoil anything else, teasing fans “you’ll have to go see the movie.” However, as Slash Film notes, Deckard introduces himself, shoots the man, and then rips his jaw off the body to reveal a replicant. It’s unknown if Scott will stick to this exact sequence, but Slash Film — taking into account the tension in the buildup described by Scott — figures there will be some sort of struggle between the two.
