'Blade Runner 2049' will be ''one of the most expensive R-rated independent feature films ever made''.
The much-anticipated sci-fi movie is being helmed by Denis Villeneuve, who has confirmed that the film - which stars Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling - will cost an eye-watering amount of money to make.
He shared: ''My producers are finding it fun to remind me that it will be one of the most expensive R-rated independent feature films ever made.''
Denis also revealed that he wants the movie to feature a minimal amount of CGI.
The director told Screen Daily: ''I can count on my fingers the amount of times we put a green screen on set. Most of the movie was done on camera, me and [cinematographer] Roger Deakins worked very hard to do it that way.
''My actors were not walking on green screens all day long. CGI is a strong tool for backgrounds and extensions but what is around the actors needs to be as real as possible. When I watch a movie that's mostly CGI, I'm disengaged.''
'Blade Runner 2049' is currently in the process of being edited, and Denis has admitted he is keen to work on another sci-fi movie as soon as possible.
The director also suggested he could return for another 'Blade Runner' movie.
He said: ''I'm doomed, I love sci-fi. I have two more ideas now that I would love to do. [And] 'Blade Runner' could go on... we'll see how this one goes.''
The actor says he isn't "holding out for more money or doing anything like that".
The drama will be making its return to the streaming service in the near future.
