So Many Options
According to this recent New York Post article, there are several PKD works currently under option:
Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said
Adjustment Team (Short Story)
Time Out of Joint
Do you see how I skipped a line before mentioning VALIS? I wanted that to make an impression on you. It could be so good - it could be so bad.
And that's your assignment Dick-Heads:
What are your greatest hopes, your perfect storms for these adaptations: what actors, directors, soundtrack composers, do you hope for?
Who or what do you dread?
In response to another post, commenter rp imagined PKD being played by The Rock in the upcoming bio-pic. I think the worst would be if Arnold Schwarzenegger were to play the nebbish lead character in We Can Remember It... oh right.
I can't give anything away until I get it together to get jaldhar his books from the cover of the day contest (they'll get there someday buddy), so this is purely for Dick-Head bragging rights.
Commenter Darryl noted that Tom Cruise owned the rights to Flow My Tears... and planned to play Taverner. I'll raise you, Tom Cruise as Horselover Fats, in VALIS retitled, VEGAS:Venus Enjoys Gathering All Scientologists, but now I'm being glib.
