Amazon Picks Up ‘Blade Runner 2099’

Blade Runner 2099 is set 50 years after Denis Villeneuve’s Harrison Ford-Ryan Gosling film. Silka Luisa is the showrunner and executive producer, and Scott is also an EP. Amazon Prime Video revives the Blade Runner franchise.

Amazon ordered a sequel to 2017’s Blade Runner 2049, a sequel to the original Blade Runner.

Alcon Entertainment co-founders Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said they’re happy to continue working with Amazon. The studio acquired all Blade Runner film, TV, and ancillary franchise rights in 2011 and produced Blade Runner 2049 (starring Ford, Gosling, Jared Leto, Ana de Armas, Robin Wright, and Dave Bautista) and Blade Runner: Black Lotus. Johnson and Kosove will also executive produce.

Blade Runner, based on Philip K. Dick’s 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, is set in 2019 dystopian Los Angeles, where synthetic humans (replicants) work on space colonies. Ex-cop Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) grudgingly agrees to hunt down replicants headed by Rutger Hauer’s Roy Batty. Daryl Hannah, Sean Young, and Edward James Olmos co-star.

Blade Runner 2099

We don’t know who the lead actors are yet because the show is still in production. The showrunner and some writers for Blade Runner 2099 are known. Silka Luisa’s the showrunner. Known for composing Halo and Shining Girls. Fans may be hesitant about her as showrunner. Ridley Scott is executive producer, which may be soothing.
Scott directed the first picture, based on Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Scott is a science fiction film icon, so it’s great to have his input. Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve’s role is unknown.
Hampton Fancher’s absence from this Blade Runner project is worrying. Hampton Fancher wrote both Blade Runner scripts. He’s the franchise’s cornerstone, so his absence from the upcoming series could be telling. We’ll see if he joins in the future.

Prime Video Attacks

Amazon is gradually becoming a prominent streaming platform. The Rings Of Power is a powerful move. Its premiere had the biggest Prime video streaming figures ever, so they may receive their money’s worth. With so many new adaptations and fresh seasons of great shows like The Boys and Invincible, Prime Video may become the world’s biggest streamer.

Blade Runner 2099‘s release date is unknown. The show may debut in late 2023 or early 2024.
