Will Ridley Scott's Blade Runner Sequel Be In 3-D? [News]

In an interview with the "Wall Street Journal" Ridley Scott says he's working on a follow up to his classic film Blade Runner and it's “liable to be a sequel.” But, will it be in 3-D?

One thing to consider is that he just finished his latest movie Prometheus in 3-D. While talking about filming at the San Diego Comic-Con he said "I’ll never work without 3-D again, even for small dialogue scenes.” He feels the depth of field makes for a richer experience.

This is the way I felt after watching Avatar and the way I didn't feel watching Tron. If it's done right, the film could be exciting.

Here's his full quote about 3-D:
3D has been a wonderful exercise but I was brought up as a camera operator so its really about lensing and all that kind of stuff.
So with the help I’ve had from a wonderful cameraman and his technical team its been, for me, a pretty straight forward ride.
That said I’ll never work without 3D again, even for small dialogue scenes. I love the whole process. 3D opens up the universe of even a small dialogue scene so I’ve been very impressed with that.
If he wasn't joking then the untitled Blade Runner sequel will be filmed using 3D technology. Although, it depends on the success of Prometheus next year.
What do you think? Would you watch a Blade Runner sequel in 3-D?

  1. I loved Blade Runner, but I'm NOT a fan of 3-D. I've never liked it. I think I'm the only one on the planet who doesn't like 3-D flicks. I'm just weird I guess.

  2. Since I probably won't see it in the theater and I probably won't have 3-D TV for a while, the answer is no I probably won't see it in 3D but I would if I could. I'll probably watch the regular Blade Runner follow up on regular DVD. I don't think Ridley will screw it up too badly.

  3. Ciara, you're not weird or alone. Studios are losing money on 3-D.
