Did You Know?
Originally, at the early development stage of the project, Ridley Scott
was set to take on the directorial duties of Blade Runner 2049
(2017). By the time the movie was getting close to pre-production, Scott announced he would no longer take the helm but would stay involved as a producer. Specifics weren't given by Scott on why he dropped out of directing the film. Oddly enough, a report came out in August 2014 that Alien: Covenant
(2017), a sequel to Prometheus
(2012), may be getting delayed because Scott planned to helm Blade Runner 2049
(2017) after The Martian
(2015), which was in production at the time. But now, it looks to be the other way around, and Scott's commitment to Alien: Covenant
(2017) may have forced him to step away from directing Blade Runner 2049
(2017). See more
