Ridley's Brave New World

10.07.2008

io9 recently spoke to Ridley Scott about his work on adapting Aldous Huxley's dystopian novel "Brave New World" for the screen. You can check out the full interview over HERE, but here is the meat:

"I didn't choose to do it, someone came to me with it. In fact it was Leo's [Leonardo DiCaprio's] production company that came to me with that. And it's a big challenge, in fact. Because when you look at the two players or visionaries in the field, at that moment [it] would be Huxley and it would be Orwell and that was 60 or 75 years ago. They were predictions in a way, they weren't aware at the time, but they were predictions. One could argue that Orwell kind of got there first and Orwell was closer to the notion of "big brother," [with the] Cold War. But I don't think that's it, I think that big brother may be the internet. I don't know but I think that's the way it's going to go. And so the Aldous Huxley's [novel] literally what is called Brave New World that's a very hard adaptation. So we're still dancing with that one, but it's a challenge."

I haven't read the novel so I don't know what's going on but if you're wondering who Leo DiCaprio will be playing, it's probably the super-sexy guy with an accent. If you don't already know and want to find out what the book is about you can read some real in-depth stuff over HERE. In addition, I'm sure a more widely-read schmoe will fill you in.
