HOLLYWOOD – Someone just leaked the script for Blade Runner 2050 onto the internet.
Did you love Blade Runner 2049? Do you want to see the sequel Blade Runner 2050? Well, there’s a good chance you never will. But we’ve managed to get a copy of the script after it leaked onto the internet. So here it is.
INT. CLOSE UP.
Extreme close up of an eye blinking. Hans Zimmer blows his electronic TUBA.
EXT. CINEMATOGRAPHY. NIGHT
Cinematography as far as the eye can see. J (Hayden Christensen) pilots a Spinner, a futuristic flying car over the miles and miles of cinematography, until he lands on the roof of a magnificent ziggurat.
INT. ZIGGURAT. NIGHT
J descends in a strobing lift and enters a magnificent hall, where he is greeted by L (Lindsay Lohan) and an OWL.
Welcome to the Production Design.
Thank you. I’ve come from the cinematography.
Do you like the production design?
You could at least look at it.
I did look at it. Is that owl artificial?
Of course it is.
It must be very expensive.
We put it in the production design budget.
I’ve come to see if you’re human.
I’m not. Neither are you.
Is anyone human anymore?

SICARIO – REVIEW: Denis Villeneuve’s cross border thriller is a dark, complex investigation into the front line of the drug war.
Emily Blunt plays Kate Macer, a Police officer who graduates from kicking in doors to join a special task force led by Josh Brolin’s amoral agent Matt. Matt is unconventional and so is his squad. The flipflop wearing dudester is obviously into rule breaking, with some kind of blessing from on high and we’re prepared for a classic Hollywood narrative as the young straight laced rookie learns to bend the rules to get results, getting a little crooked on the way. But like many things with Sicario, expectations are raised only to be subverted. Lines are crossed as well as borders as the team motor into a Mexico town to collect a potential witness, a thundering convoy into a hellish Mexican town is executed with brutal excitement, an almost documentary immersion into the world. A fog of compromise and doubt pervades the movie, which each character tries to cut through in their own way. The half-light of the Mexico-US border is caught by Roger Deakins amazing cinematography that imbues proceedings with a the kind of badlands noir that No Country for Old Men hinted at.
Another member of the squad is the apparently stateless Alejandro, played by a magnificent Benico Del Toro. No one is sure where he comes from or what his relationship is to the cartels, or what his legal role is. And he glowers with the kind of dark history of a dead man walking, an instrument of darkness who Matt employs but never truly controls. Former TV actor Taylor Sheridan has crafted a screenplay that provides the sort of grim fare that made the Seventies brilliant and Emily Blunt does her best to maintain her calm even as the film veers away from her and into much darker territory. By the end we don’t really know where we are and for the first time, I was genuinely looking forward to the Blade Runner sequel.
HOLLYWOOD – Damon Lindelof has been arrested after defying a court order making it illegal for Mr. Lindelof to approach within 200 metres of the Blade Runner sequel, tentatively titled Blade Runner 2.
Judge Jorges Harenton had ruled in his judgement in June of this year, soon after seeing Prometheus, that Mr. Lindelof should obey the restraining order as he has had a history of causing a huge amount of public distress, especially with his ‘bullshit plotting and cloth-eared dialogue’.
Judge Harenton went on to write in his ruling, that the Lost writer ‘had grievously and with knowledge aforethought caused untold damage to what had been like the science fiction horror film of all time.’
Mr. Lindelof had responded by saying ‘Is this serious? that can’t be right’ and had treated to the restraining order as a joke. He was found in the early hours of this morning emailing Ridley Scott
with a story outline (to read the email CLICK HERE
). In his possession was a heavily annotated copy of Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
the book on which the original film was based.
In a surprise twist, STUDIO EXEC can reveal that it was Ridley Scott who telephoned the police on receiving the email.
