'Blade Runner 2049' Director Denis Villeneuve in Early Talks for 'Cleopatra'

Did you hear the one about Harrison Ford swapping jokes with Jimmy Fallon?

K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve tapped three of his filmmaker friends to create three different short films to help fill in the gaps between the original Blade Runner and his sci-fi sequel. You could watch this movie with no sound (something I don't advocate you do, because the dialogue, music, and sound design are all incredible too) and still enjoy each of the film's 163 minutes. The movie is adapted from Stacy Schiff's best-selling book that tells the story of the Egyptian female ruler as a shrewd strategist that reshaped the contours of the ancient world against the backdrop of political and sexual intrigue.

Before journalists including Reuters saw "Blade Runner 2049" at advance press screenings, they were read a note from Villeneuve urging not give away any key plot points. "Leto achieves the desired weirdness level as the corporate genius behind the upgraded replicants, while Wright is all business as a top cop".

"While watching Blade Runner 2049, I kept thinking about the first time I saw the original Blade Runner. My god, I can't believe I'm saying this, but Blade Runner 2049 makes Blade Runner a better movie".
