Filming on Blade Runner 2099 in Northern Ireland delayed by US writers’ strike

Filming on the Amazon Studios’ series in Belfast has been delayed due to the ongoing Writers’ Guild of America strike.

The upcoming series is based on the Blade Runner films and is executive produced by Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Gladiator). Prepping at Belfast Harbour Studios has been delayed by the strike.

In a statement, Northern Ireland Screen confirmed the delay: “Northern Ireland Screen is extremely disappointed that Blade Runner 2099 is not going ahead at this time due to the ongoing writers’ strike. The project has been prepping on the ground in Belfast for many months now. The WGA strike has been halting production all over the world and we hope a fair deal is reached soon so crew can get back to work.”

“This obviously leaves a gap in Northern Ireland’s production schedule and Northern Ireland Screen will do everything it can to plug that gap as quickly as possible, mindful that many freelance crew and supply chain companies were relying on this project for work in the months ahead.”

Blade Runner 2099 is produced by Alcon Entertainment in association with Scott Free Productions and Amazon Studios. Silka Luisa (Shining Girls) is the showrunner on the series, and will executive produce.

BBC NI News reported that filming is “unlikely to resume before spring 2024”.

Vernon Sanders, Amazon Studios’ head of global television, has described it as a “continuation of the Blade Runner franchise”. As indicated by its title, the upcoming series is set 50 years after Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049.
