Splice Helmer Adapting “Neuromancer”

Vincenzo Natali (“Cube,” “Splice”) will direct a film adaptation of cyberpunk author William Gibson’s 1984 seminal work “Neuromancer” for Fire Development Inc. and Astral Media says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story follows a washed-up computer hacker hired by a mysterious employer to work on the ultimate hack.

Joseph Khan was previously tapped to direct with Hayden Christensen starring, that no longer seems to be the case.
