Neuromancer movie, again.



One of the best conceptualizations of Molly I have seen.

Think I am going to get something like this on me at some point.

Neuromancer
The movie's still happening, apparently. Vincenzo Natali says of his plans:

"A literal translation of the Neuromancer book would be a disastrous movie. It would probably be impossible, because you could never condense it into a single film. So I wasn't literal in my adaptation, but I very much stayed true to the tone of it and the spirit of it."

Tons more at the link, including the fact that William Gibson has given lots of feedback on the script, and Natali sees it primarily as a "heist movie." TheTyee

That Firestone guy scares the shit out of me.

The shameless talk about a prequel being needed to attract young audiences...
The horror.
Fuck.

We're doomed

Yeah, I had to read that bit a few times to check he was talking about a prequel film, which would be bad enough, rather than a prequel book, which would be sacrilege!

I think that interview was all about attracting investors by promising all kinds of stuff.

He's a *producer*. I think a producer's role in life is to scare the shit out of people who actually like art.

As much as I hate to say it, I really think that detective Chick from Castle's got the bone structure for it. She's half Serbian or something.

And Canadian, eh, which would be fitting.

Oui.

Stana Katic.

And, hell the spoonerism sounds like a name for a Gibsonian futuro-hooker: "Kana Static".

Yeah, why do we keep teasing ourselves with this thread? Lol

I guess in my mind the overriding feature of Molly was always her physicality, she should be big and have the solid muscle of somebody that makes a living from hurting people. Think of the muscle tone of female track and fielders, that is what I see when I read her. But, that may just be me, you'd want as much of a contrast with Case as you could get. And the mirror eyes thing sounds a bit dated, very 80s.

I think the image of Trinity from the Matrix may have kind of bled over into Molly a bit for me. I didn't take Trinity seriously though, you'd want Molly to be somebody you'd be scared to meet in person.

I was thinking more a gymnast's physique. A dancer. Lean, lithe, quick. She needs to be a contrast with Armitage, too. I'm trying to think who should play Armitage, now...Dolph?

And, get fucked: the lenses are Molly. They're a physical metaphor for the emotional wall she's built up around herself. Windows to the soul just...blocked off. Doesn't want to let anyone get close, after Johnny...

She spits instead of crying, tear ducts re-routed to her throat: it's like she's derisive of the emotion...

Yeah, I think I meant the mirrored part.

Dolph might have a hard time playing Armitage unless they write in a reason for Armitage to use a walker.


He's old, is what I'm saying.

As I was saying, I think the whole point of them is so you can't see Molly's eyes.

Same reason your dad wears them, edit.

And maybe Henry Rollins for Armitage...

I'm torn between my steadfast refusal to participate in a "Neuromancer Movie Thread" in any meaningful and constructive way, especially on the subject of casting, and debating your ridiculous notions.

That said, I think I will just kick you in the shin next time I see you. Wink

Lol, actually I could see that, although the ending would have to be changed. No way they leave that downer of an ending where Case and Molly never see each other again.

I don't even want to think about it.

But if we're going to do this casting masturbation thing...

Molly is the tough one, you need somebody that can play the heavy. Few women actors pull it off believably. Demi Moore could do it were she 20 years younger. Michelle Rodriguez if she wasn't teeny tiny (if you've seen Girlfight you know what I mean). Gina Carano? Not sure, I just googled her, female action star and mma fighter?

Samuel L Jackson for the Finn. What? You need somebody who can do it with some style.

Here is a weird one, the voice of Wintermute will be important. I don't know that it was ever described in the book either.

The important voice would be Neuromancer (actually a person that has to be cast). Wintermute was represented by different people Case knew.

Should be a young boy, though.

FADE IN:

EXT. CHIBA CITY SKYLINE , JAPAN - NIGHT

The sky above the port is the color of a television tuned to a dead channel.

INT. CHATSUBO BAR

The Chatsubo  is a  bar  for professional expatriates, where they can drink  there  for a week and never  hear two words in Japanese.

CASE is shouldering his way through  the  crowd  around  the  door  of the Chat, overhearing conversations.

     SPRAWL EXPAT
     It's  not  like I'm using, it's like my body's developed this massive drug deficiency.

Cannot help but think this will be a leg-up film for a "promising" director who's fellated enough bigwigs in Hollywood and who want to throw him a softball. Established, respected IP, easily perverted.

It will be seventy minutes of crotch shots, probably with plenty of gratuitous flashbacks to Molly's meat puppet days. Probably cut half the team - probably roll The Finn and Riveria together. Corto might even get dumped.

With all you people drinking cocktails and eating chocolate cake in Canadia, I guess you've missed this.

Mark Wahlberg and Liam Neeson have reportedly been offered two of the most important roles in the film.

There!
