Deadpool Director Miller to Helm Neuromancer Movie

Deadpool Director Miller to Helm Neuromancer Movie

Director Joseph Kahn of Torque and Detention fame (his latest film, Bodied, debuts at this year's TIFF) was once attached to helm an adaptation of Gibson's book with Star Wars prequel star Hayden Christensen rumored to play the lead role, and eventually Cube and Splice director Vincenzo Natali replaced Kahn with a vision of the story that was envisioned as being "really about our post-human future". Fox will soon set a writer to adapt the story, but as Tim Miller has several projects already in the works, who knows when production on NEUROMANCER will begin.

First, Miller was tied to the Sonic the Hedgehog live-action/cartoon-hybrid project. He'll be taking on a film adaptation of William Gibson's 1984 novel Neuromancer, which remains as one of the best-known works in the cyberpunk space. We even got to see some concept art at one point, even though it didn't amount to anything. Neuromancer's also heavily influenced Ghost in the Shell and Equilibrium. Neuromancer has always been a target for adaptation, but has never made it before cameras: Torque director Joseph Kahn was in line to direct in 2007, while Cube and Splice director Vincenzo Natali was later attached to the project.

Neuromancer fits this bill perfectly. The target: an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence orbiting Earth in service of the sinister Tessier-Ashpool business clan. Simon Kinberg, producer on X-Men films and an Oscar nominee for The Martian, is attached to produce.

LG V30 Plus might come along with the LG V30
One of the additional improvements LG has made to its V30 imaging is a reduction in edge distortion with its wide-angle camera. Samsung might be doing damage control, but LG doesn't seem to be wasting an opportunity here.

Over the years, a ton of different filmmakers have taken a run at bringing Neuromancer to the screen, but none have quite made it across the starting line.

Coming from a background in visual effects, Tim Miller's strength has always been big, eye-catching spectacles that make the audience sit up and pay attention. If he does a good enough job, Miller will be able to prove that his success on Deadpool wasn't just a fluke, and that he doesn't need Ryan Reynolds in order to make a spectacular movie.
