+ - Hollywood's growing obsession with Philip K. Dick->

Submitted by bowman9991
bowman9991 (1173135) writes "Even after Blade Runner, A Scanner Darkly, Total Recall, the Minority Report, Paycheck, Impostor and Next, it appears Hollywood's lust for movies based on Philip K. Dick material continues. The Adjustment Bureau, starring Matt Damon, Emily Blunt and Terence Stamp is the latest, and features some classic Dick themes, including the fragile nature of reality and a fight against a world controlled and manipulated by powerful unseen entities. When Congressman David Norris meets the love of his life after a political defeat, he must peel back the layers of reality to discover why a mysterious group is so desperate to make sure they never meet again. He is up against the agents of fate itself — the men of The Adjustment Bureau. The Adjustment Bureau adaptation follows news that Terry Gilliam will adapt Dick's novel The World Jones Made, that Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said and Ubik are being adapted and that a remake of Total Recall is being developed by the ironically named Original Films Studio."
