Denis Villeneuve, the director, as revealed that the film-makers are aiming for an R-rating for BR2049.He also confirmed that the film wrapped shooting in late November and the editing process has now commenced in Los Angeles.
“My producers are finding it fun to remind me that it will be one of the most expensive R-rated independent feature films ever made.”Villenevue also revealed about his determination to make the film with as minimal CGI as possible, applying the same principal to the shoot that he had used for his most recent feature Arrival.
“I can count on my fingers the amount of times we put a green screen on set. Most of the movie was done on camera, me and [cinematographer] Roger Deakins worked very hard to do it that way.
My actors were not walking on green screens all day long. CGI is a strong tool for backgrounds and extensions but what is around the actors needs to be as real as possible. When I watch a movie that’s mostly CGI, I’m disengaged.”
In the end, even if I'm not into sci-fi at all I have to say I want to watch this movie, especially now I know few CGI will be used.
I've watched Legend of Tarzan and I was really nauseated by the amount of CGI used. Most of all they have reduced the main character (an actor I really like a lot, Alexander Skarsgård) to a body.
