The second of three prequels to Blade Runner 2049 by director Luke Scott (Ridley’s son) commissioned by Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve.

This one is set one year before the events of the upcoming film and focuses on Dave Bautista’s character, Snapper Morton.

2036: Nexus Dawn – a short film by (Ridley’s son) Luke Scott – the first of three such sequel-prequels commissioned by Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve and set between the events of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner and the upcoming Blade Runner 2049. To wit:

This in-world short film takes place in the year 2036 and revolves around Jared Leto’s character, Niander Wallace. In this short, directed by Luke Scott (Morgan), Wallace introduces a new line of “perfected” replicants called the Nexus 9, seeking to get the prohibition on replicants repealed. This no doubt has serious ramifications that will be crucial to the plot of Blade Runner 2049.

Maybe I’m a SciFi geek but I like the idea behind this :)

PS – Saw Prometheus over the weekend. It was only OK, but nowhere near as bad as some of the reviews I’ve read…. that’s just an aside :)
