In un’intervista concessa a Jeff Bridges per Interview, il grande direttore della fotografia Roger Deakins ha raccontato qualche retroscena sulla lavorazione imminente del sequel di Blade Runner.
Il film sarà girato da Denis Villeneuve in 2d, ma sarà verosimilmente gonfiato in 3d per l’uscita in sala.
Nonostante la sua ricca esperienza con il 3D, per molte animazioni (…da Wall E a Dragon Trainer), Deakins non aveva alcuna intenzione di girare in 3D nativo.
No, I won’t. I’ve been offered it. I just don’t want to. I think I’m gonna do this film with Denis [Villeneuve] that’ll be made into 3D eventually, but it won’t be shot in 3D. I don’t really like watching 3D. I mean, I’ve worked on a lot of animated movies that were 3D.
Il film segnerà la terza collaborazione con il regista canadese dopo Prisoners e Sicario.
Deakins ha poi parlato di Ridley Scott che produrrà il sequel e che aveva incontrato il direttore della fotografia in passato per capire se era possibile una collaborazione: “I met with Ridley Scott a few times; this was two years ago. I really enjoyed talking to him, but I knew Ridley liked to operate the camera himself. I said to him at the end, ‘honestly don’t know how this will work because I like to operate and you like to operate, and I don’t think either of us is gonna change.’ [laughs] So you can’t really force yourself to be somebody you’re not. If it’s somebody you don’t know, and you go into a meeting, you’ve got to feel you can work with them and with their way of working,” the cinematographer said.
The other thing he likes doing is shooting on zoom lenses, and I’m not mad about zoom. [laughs] You know, most of the shoots I do with the boys, we shoot single camera. ‘Sicario,’ we shot single camera,”
