Neuromancer gets a director

Posted by LiveFor on May 7, 2010

Vincenzo Natali, director of Splice, is to direct the big-screen adaptation of cyberpunk author William Gibson’s 1984 classic Neuromancer.

According to THR Joseph Khan was previously down to direct the Gibson novel, with Hayden Christensen starring, before Natali stepped in. Not sure if Christensen is still attached. Personally I hope not.

“Neuromancer” tells the story of a washed-up computer hacker hired by a mysterious employer to work on the ultimate hack and was basically one of the novels that started the whole cyberpunk thing.

Word on the street is that Natali’s Splice is pretty cool and he may well be the right choice for Neuromancer.

What do you think of the choice and who do you want to see star in it?

    Well, haven’t seen Splice yet, but judging by Natali’s previous output I approve.

    Splice sucks, and Don Murphy can’t handle.

    Read Don go off like an idiot just because one of us didn’t like his film.
