Electric Shepherd Productions wants to bring Philip K. Dick's book Now Wait For Last Year to the screen. Ted Kupper has been hired to adapt the story about an organ-transplant doctor named Eric Sweetscent who gets caught up in a war between a species.

Full synopsis:
Dr. Eric Sweetscent has problems. His planet is enmeshed in an unwinnable war. His wife is lethally addicted to a drug that whips its users helplessly back and forth across time -- and is hell-bent on making Eric suffer along with her. And Sweetscent's newest patient is not only the most important man on the embattled planet Earth but quite possibly the sickest. For Secretary Gino Molinari has turned his mortal illness into an instrument of political policy -- and Eric cannot tell if his job is to make the Male better or to keep him poised just this side of death.

Now Wait for Last fear bursts through the envelope between the impossible and the inevitable. Even as ushers us into a future that looks uncannily like the present, it makes the normal seem terrifyingly provisional -- and compels anyone who reads it to wonder if he really knows what time it is.



The project is currently looking for a director and if they succeed the plan is to start production in the second half of next year.
