We got Westworld coming down the pipeline for HBO based on the Michael Crichton novel, with a trailer that had my interest. This on the heels of a disappointing mini-series over at SyFy, Childhood’s End based on the Arthur C. Clarke work. Now another sci-fi book/film is being adapted over at HBO,  Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. This series has already had one film in 1966, directed by Francois Truffaut, and holds a considerable amount of mixed views in its regard. Creator Ramin Bahrani (99 Homes; Man Push Cart; Chop Shop; Goodbye Solo; At Any Price)  will oversee the project from its conception.

Synopsis:

In a dystopian future world, fireman burn books where they are outlawed.

The book has some robot dogs. And who doesn’t love those. And even though Bradbury didn’t much like how his now classic book was embraced, as his leanings were far more conservative. There are always things outside the directors purview, whether they like it or not.

    Watched 99 Homes last month. It was pretty good Shannon was great in it, as usual. Garfield wasnt terrible.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Would love to see this get the Verhoeven treatment!!!

  • I_am_better

    If I remember correctly, Mel Gibson tried to get a film of this made for years. But that was before he went off the deep end.

  • Turd Has Escaped The Gravy

    Frank Darabont was supposed to direct this. Does he even work anymore?

  • Dee-abolik

    We all know he is pro- book burning.

  • Tarmac492.1

    yes, I think it was right after or before Braveheart.

  • Tarmac492.1

    It was a pleasure to burn.

    fingers crossed for the scene from the play where the sergeant shows the guy his room full of books. you can have them, but you can’t read them. also, the girl who opens his eyes to the world is in my top 5 most bangable literary characters…

    i heard he was trying to do 1984. maybe both as some sort of dystopian series…
