He’s now aligned with producer Simon Kinberg to direct an adaptation of the William Gibson novel?Neuromancer that came out back in 1986. One of the cultural touchstones that […]

    It's arriving so late tot he party that I wonder at how well it will do. It set up and really created the whole cyberpunk genre, but so much of that has hit theaters in so many ways, from pure straight up cyberpunk movies to films that are influenced by the genre, that I wonder if this will ever make it out.
    My Avatar: The lovely Mikuru Asahina from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Why do I stick with her in a world of constantly changing avatars? Because:
    1) Her friendly, playful attitude in that picture, (despite being forced unwillingly into cosplay), reflects my own friendly, playful personality;
    2) Mikuru-chan is an excellent combo of smoking hot and super sweet cuteness; and
    3) It makes it easiier for me to find my own posts in threads.

      I look forward to it. Molly Millions - the original razorgirl - is such an iconic character, I can't wait to see her on the big screen.

      My concern, though, is that the plot of Neuromancer might be a bit staccato (i.e. episodic) for a movie. Given how Wintermute built the team up, person by person, from around the globe, and how much time the book spent on it, a straight adaptation would probably work better as a miniseries. Two episodes on Case's recruitment, another two on Dixie Flatline, one each on Rivera and Armitage, then two-to-four in Straylight . . .
