The Life Of Philip K. Dick Is Brought To The Screen; Theron To Star With Cuarón As The Director
Philip K. Dick, the sci-fi author’s life is brought to life by Charlize Theron and Alfonso Cuarón.
The feature film is described as;
“a moving, suspenseful, and darkly humorous story about a woman’s unique relationship with her brilliant, but troubled twin, who also happens to be the celebrated novelist Philip K. Dick. While attempting to rescue her brother from predicaments both real and imagined, Jane plunges deeper and deeper into a fascinating world of his creation.”
Daughter Isa Hackett will produce together with Cuarón.
“The story of Jane has been with me for as long as I can remember,” said Hackett. “Jane, my father’s twin sister who died a few weeks after birth, was at the center of his universe. Befitting a man of his unique imagination, this film will defy the conventions of a biopic and embrace the alternate reality Philip K. Dick so desperately desired—one in which his beloved sister survived beyond six weeks of age. It is her story we will tell, her lens through which we will see him and his imagination. There is no better way to honor him than to grant him his wish, if only for the screen.”
The film will be produced by Electric Shepherd Productions, Denver and Delilah Productions and Esperanto Filmoj. Lila Rawlings from Esperanto Filmoj is executive producing. Philip K. Dick is the writer of Blade Runner, Total Recall and the Amazon series The Man in the High Castle. The film does still not have a global distributor.
