Black Out 2022 is set three years after the original 1982 film, which was directed by Scott. Dave Bautista, who was briefly glimpsed in the most recent 2049 trailer, stars in this short as a replicant on the run.

Flying Lotus revealed during July's NY premiere of his film Kuso that he was working on a collaboration with famed animé director Shinichirō Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo). The brief video above also offers a closer look at its test animation, concept art, and some actual footage. Cowboy Bebop's director/creator, Shinicihro Watanabe, is going to be working on a Blade Runner anime. That puts the action of the film between the original Blade Runner, which takes place in 2019, and the upcoming sequel, which of course takes place in 2049. Watanabe's Blade Runner anime will detail what happened in the 30 years between both films. The film produced by Andrew A. Kosove, Broderick Johnson, Bud Yorkin, and Cynthia Yorkin, and executive produced by Ridley Scott, Tim Gamble, Frank Giustra, Yale Badick, Val Hill, and Bill Carraro.

"As an anime professional, the film that's had the greatest influence on me has to be Blade Runner". The production of Blade Runner is believed to have cost at least $100 million.
