"Blade Runner 2049" cast David Bautista and Lennie James had a little chat about their upcoming movie. The actors revealed details about Dennis Villanueva's movie and the film's lead star Ryan Gosling.
David Bautista Talks "Blade Runner 2049"
David Bautista or known as his Wrestling name, Batista, has been getting a lot more attention now after he starred in James Gunn's "Guardian of the Galaxy". Alongside with Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Bradley Cooper, the actor returns with its sequel as Drax.
Adding on to his new projects and probably one his favorite starring role is the upcoming "Blade Runner 2049". Bautista revealed to Collider that he indeed experienced a major geek meltdown when he met Kurt Russell and he even fanboys with Ryan Gosling.
"I didn't want to hit him with all of the fanboy questions right off the bat, but as soon as I got comfortable with him I did," Bautista said when asked about his meeting with Russell in "Blade Runner 2049".
When it comes to Gosling, Bautista admitted that he felt the "Ryan Gosling Effect" more than anything. In addition, he also has good things to say about his "Blade Runner 2049" costar.
On the other hand, when asked whether he is wearing makeup or prosthetics in "Blade Runner 2049", he revealed that it is obviously him and "it's a very cool role".
"I think the film itself is going to be so huge, as well as Guardians, but people are very familiar with Guardians. It's really not the same, because people have been waiting 30 years for a sequel to Blade Runner, so there's just such a high anticipation," Bautista revealed.
Lennie James Talks "Blade Runner 2049" Secrecy Level
"The Walking Dead" star Lennie James reveals the secrecy level of "Blade Runner 2049". He is used with this strategy as he has been working with the AMC for a very long time, however, he admitted that this is nothing when it comes to Villanueva's movie.
James revealed how the "Blade Runner 2049" production team offered him a job and gave him only 36 hours to read the script and then decide whether he will sign up or not. In his interview with Newsweek, he said that the script was on an app thing and there is only one device where you can open it.
"I couldn't take a screenshot, I couldn't take a photograph, I couldn't save it," James said. "It was frantic. When I finished on the gig ... Nine hours after wrap that script vanished from my iPad."
"Blade Runner 2049" will premiere on October 7.
