Ridley Scott Adapting Philip K. Dick Novel For Syfy Miniseries!!!
Ridley Scott, who turned the Philip K. Dick novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” into “Blade Runner,” is now executive-producing a 4-hour Syfy miniseries based on Dick’s “The Man in the High Castle.”
Deadline describes the novel:
Dick’s novel is an alternate history story set in a world in which Nazi Germany and Japan were victorious in the second World War. The year is 1962 and the Axis Powers occupy the U.S., where fascism rules and the few surviving Jews hide under assumed names.
Frank Spotnitz (“The X-Files,” “The Lone Gunmen,” “Night Stalker,” “Strike Back,” “Hunted”) will write the first two hours and supervise scripting of the latter two.
Scott’s prior TV miniseries efforts include the remakes of “The Andromeda Strain” and “Coma.”
