Books and Film

It is still snowing.... Ugh!

In other news, I just found out that William Gibson has another book that is destine for colloid production... I guess it all digital now...

Anyway two of Gibson's short stories were previously
made into movies, 'Johnny Mnemonic' (1995), directed by RobertoLongo and starring Keanu Reeves and Dina Meyer, and 'New Rose Hotel' (1998), directed by Abel Ferrara and starring Willem Dafoe and Christopher Walken.

There are now two more books slated for production "His bestseller novel that
was first published in 1984, Neuromancer, is being brought to the big screen by indie producer Peter Hoffman. The project will get a $70 million budget with JosephKahn currently set to direct."* And "Peter Weir (Master & Commander, The Truman Show, Dead Poets
Society) has signed on to direct and the movie is currently listed as his next project after “War Magician”. Writer DavidArata (Brokedown Palace, Spy Game) has been hired on to do the screenplay. Interesting that this is also Gibson’s first book that takes place in the present
