The long in the works film adaptation of William Gibson’s acclaimed sci-fi novel “Neuromancer,” which at last report stalled several years ago, has apparently found a new lease on life.
Screen reports that UK-based GFM Films has been joined by Chinese media company C2M Media Group which has stepped up with financing for the project. The pair will now co-develop and produce the film with the first priority being the hiring of a new writer and director.
Several people have been previously attached to the project, most notably Vicenzo Natali (“Cube”) and Joseph Kahn (“Torque”). At present, the only linked name is producer Lucas Foster (“Mr. and Mrs. Smith”).
