The Halcyon Company, who’re behind the upcoming “Terminator Salvation”, picked up first-look rights to sci-fi author Philip K. Dick’s estate in 2007.
Now they’ve selected Dick’s “Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said” as the first of his works they intend to turn into a feature film says The Hollywood Reporter.
Set in a futuristic, dystopian world, “Tears” is the tale of a celebrity who wakes up after an assassination attempt to find no one has ever heard of him.
Previous Dick stories have been turned into films with mixed success. For every solid work such as “Blade Runner”, “Total Recall” and “Minority Report” there have been some less impressive fare like “A Scanner Darkly,” “Impostor,” “Paycheck,” “Screamers” and “Next”.
Halycon co-founders Victor Kubicek and Derek Anderson will produce alongside Dale Rosenbloom and John Alan Simon. Isa Dick Hackett and Laura Leslie will also be involved.
