Seven Arts Entertainment Inc. and Prodigy Pictures are teaming with di Bonaventura Pictures to produce the long-gestating adaptation of cyberpunk author William Gibson's 1984 seminal work "Neuromancer" reports MarketWatch.
The story follows a washed-up computer hacker hired by a mysterious employer to work on the ultimate hack. The UK/Canadian/Hungarian co-production is being done on a fairly economical $60 million budget.
Vincenzo Natali ("Cube," "Splice") will direct while Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Mark Vahradian, Jay Firestone and Steve Hoban, will produce. Shooting aims to kick off later this year.
