YOU GOT PARENTS AND STUFF?!
All these articles look a little shady, but apparently the Neuromancer movie (originally announced in 2007 with a budget of $70 million-ohmama) has gotten the ball rolling again with a new director on board: Vincenzo Natali, who has blessed the world with gems such as Cube and Splice.
All this sounds good and dandy, but I’m a bit worried about this project if it ever does get off the ground. If William Gibson does write it I hope he took a good hard look at his last attempt and learned from his glorious, wildly entertaining mistakes. The man can write a book, but even Henry Rollins had trouble saving that screenplay… and there can only be one horribly awesome William Gibson sci-fi movie.
I could post my favorite scenes from this movie all day
