According to Saturday's Production Weekly, the film is entitled Panasonic, and will star Bill Pullman as Dick. Panasonic is described as a "comedic journey" into the author's mind, and Wilder is dreaming big. Get this: "The lines between reality and perfection blur ... Paranoid conspiracy theories of the highest order, drug-fueled interdimensional shifts, and 1970s pop-culture combine for the mind-bending adventure of the century." [Emphasis added.] Whoa. Man, I don't care if Chris De Burgh is directing -- I am totally sold on this one.
The movie is due to begin shooting next month.
