Ridley Scott Producing Philip K. Dick Project!

According to Deadline Hollywood, Ridley Scott will produce a four part BBC miniseries based on Philip K. Dick‘s Hugo Award winning novel The Man in the High Castle.  The novel is about a world in which the Axis powers won World War II.  This represents the first Ridley Scott adaptation of one Dick’s works since Blade RunnerHoward Brenton has been hired to pen the adaption.

This is great news.  The Man in the High Castle is a classic of Science Fiction literature.  And a thrilling read.  We highly recommend it.

  1. THis could be interesting…. or terrible.

    By far one of my favorite of PKDs works…. But recently the screen productions have been terrible — most notably, ‘Next’ with Nicholas Cage… cringe.

    The The Adjustment Bureau with Matt Damon also looks horrid.

    • True. And Scott’s record as a TV producer has been mixed. From great stuff like “The Gathering Storm”. To rather ho-hum stuff, like the remake of “The Andromeda Strain”. But still … we choose to be optimistic.
