Neuromancer is probably William Gibson’s most famous and celebrated novel. However, despite various attempts over the years it’s never been brought to the big screen (indeed Gibson’s idiosyncratic style means few of his stories have).
Now though, Deadpool director Tim Miller has stepped forward to try and make Neuromancer movie, according to THR. Gibson’s 1984 debut novel, ‘centers on Henry Dorsett Case, a disgraced computer hacker living in Japan who was punished for stealing from his employer by being rendered unable to access The Matrix, a worldwide virtual reality network. But he’s given a shot at getting back in the saddle when he is hired to complete the ultimate hack: one on an artificial intelligence orbiting Earth.’
Miller has already got various other movies in development since he left the Deadpool sequel over creative difference last October. It seems the Neuromance movie is in the early stages, as no writer has yet been hired. So don’t expect to see it for at least another couple of years.
