Legendary sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick’s work has been a frequent visitor to the big screen, with movies like Blade Runner, both Total Recalls, and The Adjustment Bureau, among others, but he hasn’t been as large a presence on the small screen. Sure, there was Total Recall 2070 in the late 1990s, but beyond that there hasn’t been much. That is, however, about to change. Steven Spielberg working on a Minority Report series (though that seems more based on his own movie than Dick’s work), and Amazon has just cast the first actor in their upcoming adaptation of Dick’s The Man in the High Castle.
Deadline reports that Luke Kleintank has signed on to take the lead role in the online retail giant’s latest stab at producing episodic television. He may not be a huge star, but this project does have some star power behind it, as Ridley Scott is producing. Kleintank is most known for his stints on Fox’s Bones and on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, but has also done time on multiple CSIs, Gossip Girl, and The Young and the Restless.
