DEADPOOL Director Tim Miller Will Bring NEUROMANCER to the Big Screen

DEADPOOL Director Tim Miller Will Bring NEUROMANCER to the Big Screen

Last year, Deadpool director Tim Miller dropped out of the heavily anticipated sequel over creative differences. However, Miller left the franchise on good terms and he’s reuniting with both 20th Century Fox and producer Simon Kinberg for a new adaptation of Neuromancer, the classic cyberpunk novel by William Gibson.

According to Deadline, Miller and his special effects studio, Blur, are developing the new take on Neuromancer “from the ground up.” The novel was first published in 1984, and it has proven to be very influential on films, TV series, novels, and even reality. Gibson was the first to use the phrase “cyberspace,” which quickly caught on as a shorthand term for the internet.

Much like the novel, the Neuromancer film is likely to follow Henry Dorsett Case, a former hacker who had been stripped of his ability to plug into cyberspace. An enigmatic figure known as Armitage recruits Case to find Peter Rivera, “a perverse psychopath who is able to create holograms with the force of his mind.” From there, things get really strange.

This project doesn’t currently have a screenwriter or a release date, so it’s unclear where it would fall in Miller’s schedule. 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.
