BLADE RUNNER 2099 Pilot to Be Helmed by GAME OF THRONES Director Jeremy Podeswa — GeekTyrant
Amazon Studios has hired director Jeremy Podeswa (Station 11, Game of Thrones) to helm the pilot episode of its highly-anticipated Blade Runner 2099 series. He will also serve as producing director and as executive producer.
Ridley Scott is producing the project and he will also reportedly direct some episodes of the show, and it was recently reported that Jodie Comer (Killing Eve, Free Guy) is in talks to star in the series. Silka Luisa (Shining Girls) is set to serve as writer, showrunner, and executive producer.
Michael Green, who wrote the film Blade Runner 2049, will serve as a non-writing executive producer, along with Alcon Entertainment co-founders Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson, Alcon’s head of television Ben Roberts, David W. Zucker and Clayton Krueger from Scott Free Productions, Cynthia Yorkin, Frank Giustra, and Isa Dick Hackett. Tom Spezialy has joined the writers room and also will serve as an executive producer.
While there are no story details, the story will be set 50 years after the sequel, which was set 30 years after the original. It’s going to be really interesting to see what this series ends up being.
