A Scanner Darkly

I'll begin today with a series of photos just released of a new movie based on the Phillip K Dick novel. It is Directed by Richard Linklater and stars Keanu Reeves, Winona Ryder, Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson and Rory Cochran.

Set in a future world where America has lost the war on drugs, undercover cop Fred (Reeves) is one of many agents hooked on the popular drug Substance D, which causes its users to develop split personalities. Fred, for instance, is also Bob, a notorious drug dealer. Along with his superior officers, Fred sets up an elaborate scheme to catch Bob and tear down his operation.

It will be released in 2005.

The animation looks incredible, I 'd see it for that, though I am no great fan of Phillip K Dick's work....he was a sci fi hack at best.
