The Kidd here...
There hasn't been a big screen adaptation of 1984 since... well, 1984 strangely enough. That means enough time has passed for Imagine Entertainment to do it again, with Noam Oppenheim penning the script for George Orwell's sci-fi tale of a future totalitarian government, according to Deadline.
Oppenheim has been making a name for himself as a result of his screenplays for THE SECRET LIFE OF HOUDINI, which Gary Ross has been circling since he left THE HUNGER GAMES and remakes of SNABBA CASH and WAR GAMES.
No director has been attached to the project just yet, so it's still a ways off. The last time though it was Michael Radford behind the camera with John Hurt starring as Winston Smith.
