William Gibson tweeted the above in response to rumors that Bruce Willis was raising money for a Neuromancer adaptation at this year’s American Film Market. Producer Peter Hoffman claims that Willis and Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura are already attached to the project.
IndieWire is reporting that Willis’ agents at CAA will only confirm that the actor is “currently reading the script.” The classic SciFi novel Neuromancer has won almost every award a science fiction book can win has been bandied about Hollywood for years with no results. Is Bruce Willis finally the man to make it happen?
It’s unclear if Splice‘s Vincent Natali is still on deck to direct, but who knows. These things change like the wind.
