HBO’s “Fahrenheit 451” Gets A Premiere Date

HBO Films has released a new teaser announcing a May 19th premiere date for “Fahrenheit 451,” the upcoming telemovie based on Ray Bradbury’s classic novel.

Directed by Ramin Bahrani (“99 Homes”) and written by Bahrani & Amir Naderi, the story is set in a future where the media is an opiate, history is rewritten and ‘firemen’ burn books.

Michael B. Jordan portrays Montag, a young fireman who forsakes his world and struggles to regain his humanity as he battles his mentor, fire captain Beatty, played by Michael Shannon. Sofia Boutella also stars in the film which was shot in Toronto.
