Once again a Philip K. Dick novel is bound for the big screen as Lila 9th and Electric Shepherd Productions have secured the rights to ‘Now Wait For Last Year’. Barrie M. Osborne, Cameron Lamb, and Isa Dick Hackett (the author’s daughter) are attached to produce the film.
The story, which is set in the distant future, follows an organ transplant doctor who finds himself embroiled in a war between an extraterrestrial species, ‘the starmen’, and a rival species, ‘the reegs’.
‘Now Wait For Last Year’ will be the latest in a long line of adaptations from Dick’s work, which include the cult classic BLADE RUNNER, TOTAL RECALL, and SCREAMERS.
The production process for the film will begin during the latter half of next year.
