Director Vincezo Natali (who brought us Splice) is going to helm Neuromancer, a movie adaptation of William Gibson’s cult sci-fi novel, it has been confirmed by Producer Peter Hoffman:
“We are very excited to be working with Prodigy Pictures and to have Vincenzo as the head of the Neuromancer team. After seeing his work, especially his cutting edge use of effects with Splice, we feel that he has both the story telling ability and the command of the visual medium to give this film the treatment it deserves. In Vincenzo’s hands we think Neuromancer will realize William Gibson’s extraordinary vision of the future while being a big draw at the box office.”

Here’s a synopsis of Neuromancer:
“Neuromancer tells the story of Case, an out-of-work computer hacker hired by an unknown patron to participate in a seemingly impossible crime. The novel examines the concepts of artificial intelligence, virtual reality, genetic engineering, multinational corporations overpowering the traditional nation-state, and cyberspace long before these ideas became fashionable in popular culture.”
What actor would you hire to play the role of Case the hacker?
