This is a bit exciting. Apple has bought the rights to William Gibson’s foundational cyberpunk novel and shooting is scheduled for 2023. Apparently, they’re after Miles Teller, one of the Top Gun Maverick guys, to play Case, the drug-addicted anti-hero hacker, and they’re looking for a next-gen Carrie Anne Moss analogue to play Molly, Case’s gun-toting mercenary off-sider. Whoever gets that gig will step into Case’s shoes for seasons two and three because Teller is only willing to do a one-season shoot.
I’m cool with all of it. In fact, I’m so stoked I might go back and read the book again. It’s been years, but I still remember that first par:
The youft will miss that allusion, having never encountered a TV that involved "tuning". Not the same thing as selecting the appropriate app...
I think Gibson also wrote the Peripheral. The series on Amazon . A lot of fun so far. Chloe Grace Moretz is great.
We will see. They fucked up Altered Carbon, so Im not hopeful -but you never know I guess
sad emoji face. Apple TV is not on my list of streaming services. I can only hope that if they make it it turns out like Cowboy Beebop (actually i don't wish that on anyone, even out of jealousy)
Fingers crossed as it was a story I enjoyed reading, but as I am sure many can point out its a long way from buy the rights to see the production on screen.
