The news comes by way of a press release from Seven Arts Pictures announcing that Neuromancer will be produced and financed by Prodigy Pictures and Telefilm Canada. That makes this an entirely Canadian production, which I personally think is wonderful news. I'm glad to hear that Natali is continuing to work outside of the Hollywood system to make the films that he wants to make the way he wants to make them (remember, Splice was only acquired by Warner Brothers this past February; it was still independently funded and produced).
Beyond that the details are kind of lite - we don't even have a time frame for production - but we do have this little nugget: "Seven Arts sees Neuromancer as part of a potential multi film series as many of Gibson's sci-fi masterpieces have yet to be adapted to the big screen." Great news for Gibson fans, indeed. Assuming you'd like to see more Gibson on film, that is.
