George Orwell’s 1984 Is Being Adapted Into A Movie!
Big Brother's watching!
There are few books that are as influential as George Orwell’s 1984. It is regarded as one of the greatest sci-fi literature books in history. But, it seems like it won’t just be limited to pages anymore. It looks like we’ll be seeing it adapted into a film! Moreover, the team will include names like Mattson Tomlin, who is a co-writer in the upcoming Batman film.
The 1984 movie, but in 2084!
For all those who have read 1984 by George Orwell, I’m sure it’s still somewhere buried in your mind. The ideas of Big Brother and Ingsoc were so powerful that it’s very hard to forget that book. It depicted a dystopian world, under the totalitarian rule of Big Brother, who uses surveillance to watch over every single one of its citizens. Well, it looks like we’ll be seeing it live on the silver screen!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount Pictures has picked up 2084, a movie based on the novel by George Orwell. It won’t be a direct copy of 1984 but will be more like a spiritual sister to the novel. The script is written by Mattson Tomlin, who is also a co-writer of the upcoming Batman movie. Moreover, Lorenzo Di Bonaventura will produce the movie. These hirings give a vague idea of the nature of the 1984 movie. And it might be slightly different than what we saw in the book.
What can we expect from this adaptation?
Lorenzo Di Bonaventura producing the 1984 movie gives a good idea about the kind of film it would be. His most famous works include Transformers and G.I. Joe, which gives the impression that this version of 1984 will be action-packed. Moreover, it is hinted that the film will have a similar tone to Inception and The Matrix trilogy. This shows that we can expect 2084 to be an action thriller set up in a dystopian world, much like 1984.
This does sound unique in every way, however, Tomlin’s script for this film was being fought over by various productions. And Paramount Pictures have triumphed over their competition. Therefore, you can expect a lot of action in this film, with constant references to Ingsoc, Big Brother, and the State of Oceania. Needless to say, we’re incredibly excited about the 1984 movie! And maybe if things go well, we could get a sequel based on Animal Farm. Who knows what the future has kept in store for us in 2084.
