Fahrenheit 451 (2018)

Recommended Posts

Den of Geek, January 11, 2018:
“Fahrenheit 451 is one of the seminal dystopian works in all of fiction. Ray Bradbury's classic work is disturbing and increasingly prescient sci-fi. In the 1953 novel, released during the peak of the McCarthy era panic, books are outlawed and ‘firemen’ go around to make sure that they go up in smoke, lest any unapproved ideas make their way out into the world.

Ramin Bahrani and Amir Naderi are adapting Bradbury's book, and Bahrani will direct. The timing, of course, as we find ourselves on the receiving end of an increasingly bizarre parade of "alternative facts" couldn't be more appropriate. 

In the unlikely event that the words HBO and Fahrenheit 451 in close proximity to each other aren't enough to get you excited, perhaps the cast will. Michael B. Jordan will play Guy Montag, the young fireman who starts to realize that maybe he's in the wrong line of work. HBO veteran Michael Shannon will play Captain Beatty, Montag's commanding officer at the fire department.The Mummy's Sofia Boutella has joined the cast as Clarisse McClellan (via THR).”
