Blade Runner 2099 to go on floors in June

Earlier, we had reported that actor Michelle Yeoh would headline Blade Runner 2099, a limited series for Prime Video. It is to be noted that the series is a follow-up to the 2017 Ryan Gosling- starrer Balde Runner 2049, which is a sequel to the 1982 film Blade Runner, directed by Ridley Scott. The latest update is that the series will commence filming in Prague and Spain in June.

According to Collider, the series' production will run until December this year.

Philip K Dick's sci-fi novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? formed the basis for the original Blade Runner. Ridley Scott will also serve as the executive producer of the upcoming series.

Silka Luisa serves as showrunner and executive producer on Blade Runner 2099. Although the complete list of episode directors is still confidential, it has been confirmed that Jonathan van Tulleken, the director of the first two episodes of FX's Shogun, will helm the series' initial episodes.
