Neuromancer Movie is coming

William Gibson's Cyberpunk novel Neuromancer from the 80s is entering Movie Pre-production.

You know where the term Matrix and Cyberspace is originally from? Correct. William Gibson coined the term in his ground breaking Cyberpunk novel Neuromancer back in 1984. Other William Gibson books have been already made into movies, such as Johnny Mnenomic, but not Neuromancer. Now director Vincenzo Natali has announced that he secured sales from distributors at Cannsor of a Neuromancer movie.

Slashfilm has an older interview with Natali that sheds some light about the Neuromancer movie. Whether or not Neuromancer can still have a big impact today is a bit questionable though. We are living some of the cyberspace aspects Gibson envision correctly in the book. Cyberspace has become our life, although it is still not as cool as described in Neuromancer.

Back then the book was a great inspiration and motivation for my dabbling in Virtual Reality software development. We are still not able to fully immerse in 3D worlds, because of the lack of good interfaces. Motion controllers are a start, but visual immersion is still a big problem.
