(INTERVIEWS) Dennis Villeneuve praises Ryan Gosling

Hello GosAdd,
Shame on me!! I should have posted this small thing about Blade Runner 2 few days ago but was busy.

So far we know really a little about this new project Ryan is still shooting in Budapest (Hungary).
We know also Jared Leto joins  the cast in a very important role (so it seems).
We know Harrison Ford is not yet shooting his role.
We know he is back as Deckard and Sir Ridley Scott admitted he is a fu**ing replicant.
We also now know the shooting is very long.
We also now  know Ryan is amazing as .. what his role is in the movie.
We also now know Ryan is helping making this movie with his endless ideas (as always happens when we're talking about the Gos!)

How do we know it? Simply! Because Director Villeneuve landed in Venice for his new movie "Arrival" (just for 24 hours) and was asked about the movie.

The Hollywood Reporter met with Villeneuve. Here below the talks about Ryan and Blade Runner.

The Blade Runner sequel, currently shooting in Hungary. Villeneuve flew into Venice from the set for less than 24 hours to meet with press. The film is one of the most anticipated movies of 2017, and will star Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford in his original role of Rick Deckard. 

What does it mean for your life to be 100 percent Blade Runner?
I wake up at six, I get to bed at midnight, it’s like seven days a week and you dream about it. Very often I wake up in the middle of the night, and I know I’m doomed, because I know I won’t go back to bed, because I’m too excited, there’s so much work. So I don’t sleep a lot. So that’s why if you ask me what I’m going to do after Blade Runner, I’m going to sleep.

With Blade Runner, will the visual language pay tribute to the original, or will it be something completely your own? Do you feel pressure to live up to the original?
First of all, it’s not possible to live up to the original. It’s Ridley Scott. It’s a masterpiece. It’s one of the best sci-fi films, one of the best films in the past 50 years.
For me, what terrorizes me right now is what I’m doing is taking Blade Runner and making it my own, and that is horrific. To realize that when I look at the dailies, it’s not Ridley Scott, it’s me, and that it’s different. It’s still the same universe, we are still in the same dream, but it’s mine, so it’s like I have no idea how you people will react, I don’t know. It has its own life.

How has it been working with Ryan Gosling?
I must say, the thing I can say is that Ryan Gosling is insanely good. I’m very impressed by that actor. It’s the first time I’ve worked with him and I never had someone that was as much a trooper, as dedicated, as precise and engaged. I feel that he is a real partner with me. I said to him, "You know, we are going to do it together and it’s like walking in a dark room with a lighter trying to find the way out. It’s a huge room and we are alone and it’s dark and it’s cold." And he said, "Yeah, I understand exactly." But we have a lot of fun.
It’s funny because very often we say that nobody realizes that a bunch of Canadians took over Blade Runner. We are, like, covert, nobody knows. I knew he was a great actor, I didn’t know how brilliant — he’s really an intelligent person, very clever, very provocative mind, he’s bringing a lot to the project right now, a lot, in a positive way. I’m very excited about it.

And what’s it like to work with Harrison Ford?
It’s a long shoot, and I started prep with him, but I didn’t start to shoot with him. But I will say that Harrison, to my great relief … you know Harrison Ford, he was one of my biggest heroes. I grew up with him, so to meet a man like that who is kind of a legend in your heart, that has that kind of humility, generosity, open-mindedness and simplicity, one of the nicest human beings I’ve met. I’m really looking forward to start working with him.
That's all, folks!
Stay Gos
