Movie adaptations of Philip K. Dick stories are a hit and miss proposition. For every Blade Runner or Minority Report you get something like a Next with Nicholas Cage. But a bumpy track record certainly isn’t going to stop people from trying, or at least it hasn’t yet. The latest in the long line of filmmakers looking to bring Dick to the big screen is Pariah director Dee Rees, who is now set to adapt the prolific writer’s 1964 sci-fi novel Martian Time-Slip.
According to Deadline, the Independent Spirit Award-winning Rees will write the script with Dick’s daughter, Isa Dick Hackett, with the intention of directing the film herself. That must be a pretty cool experience, working on adapting a Philip K. Dick novel with his own flesh and blood. Electric Shepherd Productions will handle all of the various producing duties on the project.
