A new Blade Runner 2049 prequel short, titled 2048: Nowhere To Run, has been released which features Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Dave Bautista as a Replicant.
Professional wrestler-turned-action-star, Dave Bautista, has done quite a bit to prove his acting chops lately. In this new short film directed by Luke Scott, who also helmed 2036: Nexus Dawn, he finally gets his chance to demonstrate his range. These shorts hope to bridge the gap between the original film and the upcoming Blade Runner 2049 by telling stories set in-between the timeline.
The creepy sci-fi short focuses on Sapper, a middle-aged man who sets aside his old life and is trying to live life day-by-day without turning back. In 2048: Nowhere To Run, we’re introduced to both his gentle nature and his violent side.
