‘Splice’ Director Adapting William Gibson’s ‘Neuromancer’

Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice) is the newest director to try and do a movie adaptation of William Gibson’s massively influential 1984 sci-fi novel Neuromancer.

“Case was the hottest computer cowboy cruising the information superhighway–jacking his consciousness into cyberspace, soaring through tactile lattices of data and logic, rustling encoded secrets for anyone with the money to buy his skills. Then he double-crossed the wrong people, who caught up with him in a big way–and burned the talent out of his brain, micron by micron. Banished from cyberspace, trapped in the meat of his physical body, Case courted death in the high-tech underworld. Until a shadowy conspiracy offered him a second chance — and a cure — for a price…”

Natali has also been linked to a new Swamp Thing film, an adaptation of the recent bestseller Tunnels and his pet project High Rise, based on J.G. Ballard’s 1975 novel about a class war in a tenement building. So, who knows which project he’ll decide to tackle first.
