Roger Deakins To Lens “Blade Runner 2”

Arguably the best cinematographer in the business right now, Roger Deakins, has come onboard in that role on the upcoming “Blade Runner” sequel at Alcon Entertainment.

Deakins, whose work includes “Skyfall,” “No Country for Old Men,” “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” “Unbroken,” “A Beautiful Mind” and “Jarhead,” will re-team with the movie’s director Denis Villeneuve following their previous collaborations on both “Prisoners” and the upcoming “Sicario”.

Filming on the follow-up to the iconic Ridley Scott classic is slated to begin next Summer with Harrison Ford reprising his role of Rick Deckard, while Ryan Gosling has also been linked to the project.

Hampton Fancher and Michael Green have written the screenplay.
