Post "Brave New World" Movie
I know that Ridley Scott is supposedly planning to direct a film version of Brave New World, but there has not been any news on that front in years. So, if a cinematic adaptation of Brave New World were ever to be made, who would you like to see a direct? I finished the book a few days back, and it honestly seems like something that Stanley Kubrick could have successfully made into a movie. However, I can also see filmmakers such as David Fincher and Paul Thomas Anderson adapting it.

I think it could be made into a good film regardless of who directs it.

I hope to heaven Scott gets nowhere near it.

He's not subtle enough. Not witty enough. Not good enough to take on this kind of stuff.

He's not my top choice either, Pete Travis would be an interesting choice.

What with all the sex and complex themes, this could easily end up being a dumbed down piece of exploitative dreck.

I have a nightmare that in the near future some hack will try (re)make 1984 and completely f*ck it up.

It's a shame when we can't trust the big studios not to murder sacred texts.

I wouldn't mind seeing 1984 remade.

This is the last of the great 20th century sci-fi/dystopian cautionary tales that has yet to be adapted for the big screen. Frankly, I can't believe it's taken this long. I don't think Ridley Scott would be a bad choice as director, but I think he'll only be producing it. I'd love to see someone like Darren Aronofsky, Alfonso CuarĂ³n, or Michael Winterbottom at the helm.
