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.
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.
