Relation between Villeneuve and Hord

Initially, Denis Villeneuve was against the concept of a sequel to 'Blade Runner' (1982), as he felt it could violate the original. But after reading the script, which he and Harrison Ford have described as "one of the best" they have ever read, he committed to the project, stating that Ford was already involved at that point: "To be very honest with you, Harrison was part of the project before I arrived. He was attached to it right from the start with Ridley [Scott]. I met him and he's honestly one of the nicest human beings I've met and is one of my favorite actors of all time, so for me it's a lot of pleasure."

Jared Leto is too fast

Jared Leto traveled to Budapest, Hungary in September 2016 to film his scenes and was wrapped in just under two weeks.
