George Orwell’s 1984 coming to the big screen again

George Orwell’s iconic dystopian novel 1984 might soon return to screens, THR reports.

Imagine Entertainment, LBI Entertainment, and street artist Shepard Fairey have teamed up to develop “a new take” on Orwell’s tale.

The producers are looking for a screenwriter to adapt the book before taking it to any studio.

If you’re unfamiliar with the novel – really? – it concerns a future society in which Big Brother rules, and actions (or even ideas) of rebellion are stifled by the Thought Police.

It was last adapted for the big screen in, erm, 1984.

Discuss: Has the time come for a new telling?

  1. I dunno, but Adrien Brody should play Winston.
