Work starts on long awaited Neuromancer movie

William Gibson’s original Matrix draws closer

The long batted around adaption of William Gibson’s pioneering cyberpunk call-to-arms Neuromancer, which among other things introduced the idea of the Matrix, is finally entering production, under the watchful eye of Splice director Vincenzo Natali

“Response to this cult cyberspace thriller has been tremendous and the film ticks a lot of boxes with distributors. The film will be a Canadian-European co-production with principal photography occurring in Canada, Istanbul, Tokyo, and London. Work on the visual effects has already begun, with an anticipated start date in the first quarter of 2012,”said Kate Hoffman, Chief Operating Officer of Seven Arts Pictures.
