Fact At­tack!

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Total recall -

Word has it that the in­dus­trial cityscapes of 2019 LA were in­spired by Scott’s mem­o­ries of driv­ing past Port Tal­bot steel­works at night.

Ef­fects su­per­vi­sor Dou­glas Trum­bull also cre­ated ground­break­ing vi­su­als for 2001, Star Trek: The Mo­tion Pic­ture and Close En­coun­ters.

At one point Blade Run­ner was to be set in San An­ge­les, a vast ur­ban sprawl cre­ated from a merged San Fran­cisco and Los An­ge­les.

Work­ing ti­tles in­cluded Dan­ger­ous Days and An­droid. The stu­dio bought the rights to 1974 novel The Bladerun­ner so they could use the ti­tle.
