The BBC is adapting Philip K. Dick’s The Man In The High Castle into a four part miniseries. Ridley Scott will direct the four one-hour episodes.
Scott is a veteran in working with Dick’s texts. He also directed the 1982 acclaimed film Blade Runner, which was an adaptation of Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. The above video shows the trailer from Blade Runner, a film worth adding to your literary Netflix cue.
The New Yorker has more: “’Castle’ is to be a BBC production, so you know it’ll be intelligent, literate (Howard Brenton is writing the script), and disinclined to bore us with pointless, generic shoot-em-ups.”
