David Morretti: “We didn’t have an idea what the [new] film was about. We explored possibilities of how to recreate the environment of the original. For me, Blade Runner [the original] is a very claustrophobic movie, dense with details, outdoor shots, indoor shots, the constant rain. We imagined creating a set which could create the same effect.”

Dan Winters: “We had a conversation where I was like, ‘What if it looked like it was shot in a weird science museum in Prague, that was covered in dust, and no one knows what it is?’

The secrecy surrounding the film was extremely high. Of the film, Gosling said, “I’m not even sure I’m allowed to say I had a good time making it.”

As for science fiction, this is what Gosling had to say: “The power of science fiction, and what’s positive about it, is that you’re able to experience the worst-case scenario without actually having to live it.”
