Neuromancer movie gets greenlight with Deadpool’s Tim Miller behind

It's hard not to think of the unexpected departure of director Tim Miller from Deadpool 2 in terms of a messy breakup. A feature-film adaptation of "Neuromancer" has been attempted several times before, with directors such as Joseph Kahn (TORQUE) and Vincenzo Natali (SPLICE) attached at various points, but it's been some time since we last heard about the project. He is already working on adapting Daniel Suarez's Influx at Fox, while also teaming up with James Cameron for a new take on the Terminator franchise.

A release date for the project has not been announced. Neuromancer has always been a target for adaptation, but has never made it before cameras: Torque director Joseph Kahn was in line to direct in 2007, while Cube and Splice director Vincenzo Natali was later attached to the project. Neuromancer's also heavily influenced Ghost in the Shell and Equilibrium. One of the earliest big cyberpunk works, the book tells the story of a crippled hacker named Case fighting advanced artificial intelligence in dark metropolises and futuristic satellite-resorts with a dead good ol' boy called the Flatline, whose mind is preserved in digital space. Simon Kinberg, producer on X-Men films and an Oscar nominee for The Martian, is attached to produce. Within the novel's dystopian world, most people are plugged into the virtual reality, with those living in "reality" residing in an collection of urban dwellings known as The Sprawl. From there, things get really odd.

While it would be fun to see two Torero teammates play against each other this Sunday, another potential Dollars vs. Langford, 6-6, 299 pounds, was placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform List on July 29, 2017.

Over the years, a ton of different filmmakers have taken a run at bringing Neuromancer to the screen, but none have quite made it across the starting line.

That said, if Miller can pull off the impossible and actually film Neuromancer, it would probably fit right in with the kinds of movies we'll be seeing in the next few years.
