Christopher Webster [Celluloid 05.07.10] movie news cyberpunk scifi



Neuromancer is a film that we’ve all been waiting to get out of development hell and some new information of a director swap gives us hope that it’s finally going to happen. Word from Fangoria (who received the tip from our good pal Avery), Splice / CUBE director Vinvenzo Natali is taking over directing duties on the William Gibson's cyberpunk classic.

Many QE commenters have bemoaned the fact that video director Joseph Kahn was attached so I'm curious if people will think this is a better decision while Splice appears to be dividing audiences.


Synopsis:
Case was the hottest computer cowboy cruising the information superhighway, jacking his consciousness into cyberspace, soaring through tactile lattices of data and logic, rustling encoded secrets for anyone with the money to buy his skills. Then he double-crossed the wrong people, who caught up with him in a big way -- and burned the talent out of his brain, micron by micron. Banished from cyberspace, trapped in the meat of his physical body, Case courted death in the high-tech underworld. Until a shadowy conspiracy offered him a second chance -- and a cure -- for a price.

This makes a total of three cool new films that Natali is attached to: Tunnels, Highrise, Neuromancer. Now lets get to them dude!

SWEET! I love Natali's films - he's got the kind of vision and creativity to make something like Neuromancer really work.

If he really does all these projects I greatly look forward to purchasing the Natali Collection on Blu-Ray in a few years. Wow.

God loves me. Really he does. If this happens, it's proof he was listening to me mumble that Natali could do this justice. Forget the other two - if he only makes this I'll be a happy camper. A *very* happy camper.

Now when this is done (in like 3 years or something), he should really look into JENNIFER GOVERNMENT.

If I had the rights to the book and wanted to get this puppy up and going again I'd say I had Natali attached to my film too...

We shall see.
