You would think being under the Marvel brand would make Dave Bautista know how to deal with spoilers. It turns out he really isn’t and in an interview with Entertainment Weekly Bautista revealed that is terrified that he’s going to spoil the story secrets of Blade Runner 2049.
“I’m actually terrified about giving out any spoilers,” says Bautista. “The NDA on that film is ridiculous.”
He was able to give us some new information about his mysterious character.
“I don’t know for sure if it’s been [announced] or not,” says Bautista. “I’ll give you the name of my character. My character’s name is Sapper Morton.”
When it comes to working with director Denis Villeneuve Bautista had nothing but positive things to say about the acclaimed director.
“It was amazing, it was amazing,” says Bautista. “He’s a very insightful person. He’s very particular about every little detail of performance, which was really great, and really interesting, because a lot of things that I was seeing as my character performance, he wasn’t seeing at all. He was envisioning it completely different. He’s very clear. He makes it very clear to understand what it is he’s looking for. A lot of times, he’ll just demonstrate. He wanted me to walk a certain way, he wanted me to take my glasses off a certain way, and he would literally come over an demonstrate it: ‘Do this and do that.’ But it was incredible, man. He’s really got such a detailed eye, it was really amazing to see hims work.”
Out of all the projects coming out this year, Blade Runner 2049 might be the biggest risk. The original Blade Runner remains at or near the very top of most influential science fiction films of all time, and the idea of making a sequel to such an influential production could backfire badly, but they have a great cast and director at the helm.
Summary: Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
Blade Runner 2049, directed by Denis Villeneuve, stars Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, Robin Wright, and Jared Leto. It will be released on October 6, 2017.
