Blade Runner 2099 – writers’ strike may delay work on the Amazon series
Amazon Prime Video ordered a series titled a year ago Blade Runner 2099. The new series in the Blade Runner universe is intended to be a continuation of the film Blade Runner 2049 from 2017, for which Denis Villeneuve was responsible. As the title indicates, the series will take place 50 years after the events shown in the aforementioned production. However, no information about the plot is known yet.
Now, however, Deadline reports that fans will have to wait longer than expected for the production. The production schedule for the series will be severely delayed due to the writers’ strike in Hollywood. The source says that this could cause up to a year of delay. The BBC reported that the photos for Blade Runner 2099 were due to begin at Northern Ireland’s Belfast Harbor Studios, but may now be pushed back to spring 2024.
In addition to Ridley Scott, the director of the original, the production also involves Alcon Entertainment, Scott Free Productions and Silka Luisa, a writer and producer known, among others, from the series Shining Girls.
