William Gibson’s Idoru Coming to Anime

“The studio people that were reading the script all loved it,” Steyermark says. “They said, ‘This is a $150 million movie.’ One of them came back and said, ‘How would you feel about doing this as an anime film?’ I thought that is really cool, really creative. It’s exciting, it’s a great way to do it on a smaller budget. At the same time, [it] could set up a live action version of it.”

They said it could have started in development as early as this May. I hope this is true. It's about time more of these great novels made it to the digital screen.

Hot damn!!! I certainly agree with you there. anime or live action would be great. I'm going to have to read that one again. It's hard to find good cyberpunk writing out there.
thanks for the post
