Christopher Webster [Celluloid 05.12.09] movie news scifi

People I'm jealous of today: Alex Billington from Firstshowing who is at Cannes, soaking up the sun and hearing some sweet-ass news first hand. Luckily he's broadcasting it to the world so we now know that Philip K. Dick's (who is incidentally one of my favorite American authors) "Flow my Tears the Policeman Said" is next in line to be adapted by The Halcyon Co. who made headlines when they bought the entire Philip K. Dick estate back in 2007.

Set in a futuristic, dystopian America following a second civil war that left the country in a police state, "Tears" is the story of a celebrity who wakes up after an assassination attempt to find no one has ever heard of him.

No word on who is writing the screenplay but it better be someone good. This is one of the best story's Dick published and I think it has the potential to be a great film.

Another fantastic Dick adaptation that has been in the pipeline for a while is "Ubik." Personally I hope they get that one off the ground first.

UPDATE FROM EDITOR: I've actually known about this for a while but wasn't allowed to say anything. John Alan Simon who owns the property and is directing Radio Free Albemuth is behind this project and will be producing.
