Christopher Webster [Celluloid 08.02.08] movie news cyberpunk scifi

Thanks to Quiet Earth reader Chris for directing us towards a recent blog post by famed "father of Cyberpunk," William Gibson, who discuses, among other things, the strange Neuromancer one-sheet that we dug up on Thursday. While he doesn't deny its validity as indeed being the first bit of marketing artwork to have been released for the film, he apparently had never seen it but, then again, admits to being "out of the loop on that one." Here's what he writes:
I see that I was too gnomic, yesterday, as some people now assume that I, like Warren Ellis, am holed up doing things related to screenwriting. Some even assume I'm doing something related to the mysterious Neuromancer film project, but in fact neither is true. I'm actually holed up (or anyway "distracted") in the early stages of a next novel, and the recent web-advent of that interestingly monochrome one-sheet for the putative production was the first I'd seen of it. Suffice it to say that I am not much in the loop on that one. But then again I am somewhat the opposite of Alan Moore, in that I regard screen adaptations of my work with little more than simple childlike curiosity. So, it would seem that we follow adaptations of his work with much more rigor than the Mr. Gibson himself- Or, we're just really good at our jobs. Either way we eagerly await more on news on this project.
