Blade Runner Sequel Show Taps Game of Thrones Alum As Director

The Blade Runner 2099 series adds Game of Thrones alum Jeremy Podeswa as its director. Ridley Scott’s landmark Blade Runner underperformed with critics and at the box office upon its initial release in 1982, though in subsequent years, become a cult classic sci-fi film. Thirty-five years later, Denis Villeneuve directed the legacy sequel, Blade Runner 2049, which released to rave reviews but similarly underwhelmed at the box office. The franchise made the jump to the small screen with the animated series Blade Runner: Black Lotus in 2021, though a live-action series, titled Blade Runner 2099 and produced by Scott, was revealed to be in development at Prime Video last year.
