Another Philip K Dick tale optioned

Terminator producers deceloping Flow My Tears

Hoping to replicate the success of Blade Runner and Minority Report (below), Halcyon has optioned Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said, one of Philip K Dick’s dystopian stories.

Producers Victor Kubicek and Derek Anderson – who helped shepherd Terminator Salvation to our screens – have nabbed the rights to the book, which is set in a futuristic America locked down as a police state.

Well, it was futuristic. Kidding!

The plot finds a celebrity who wakes up after an assassination attempt to discover that no one has ever heard of him.

It certainly sounds like an intriguing premise, though we’re betting they’ll change that title long before it hits the multiplex.

There’s no word on a writer, director or cast yet, but we’re frankly just hoping it’ll be better than Paycheck.

Question: what do you think this might be called when/if it hits cinemas?
