I've been hearing some rumors about a big screen adaptation of the William Gibson novel Neuromancer. I don't know who is set to direct or produce this film, but whoever it is better have some guts. The book is so visual and filled with metaphor it will take someone who wont pander to the average movie goer with cheap wit or special effects overloads in order to remotely mirror the original......Anyone know what the word is on this production?

Hi Lavern,
I haven't heard any recent rumors but in the past it was always meant to be a Chris Cunningham project. From what I remember, which could be wrong/scuttlebut, there were problems because Cunningham and Gibson couldn't see eye to eye about the script. It could have been a wild film.
I love the book, but I cant imagine it as a film.

I heard from a fairly reliable source that Joseph Kahn was recently attached to direct this.

Let's hope whoever it is does a better job than 'Johnny Mnemonic'
