Neuromancer Movie is coming

May 20 2011, 12:03am CDT | by , in News | Technology News

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

Neuromancer Movie is coming
 
 

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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
