NEUROMANCER Concept Art Surfaces
The grandaddy of all cyberpunk, Neuromancer is currently working towards its movie debut and here's a look at some concept art that's apparently leaked a bit early.
Is this Armitage, the role that Liam Neeson has reportedly been offered?
And is this Case, the role that would go to Marl Wahlberg?
The Matrix, Johnny Mnemonic (which could be considered a prequel),Ghost in the Shell, hell, even the internet has arguably taken ques from Willaim Gibson's 1984 novel. However,the film adaption of Neuromancer could be headed for some John Carter-esque trouble if they aren't careful. While the film may be a first, in the 28 years since its debut, many of the concepts and themes in the book have already been adapted in one sci-fi project or another. There's great potential here but there's definitely a potential for audience deja vu if fresh and original ideas are not incorporated by director Vincenzo Natali (Cube). Deals are currently on the table for Liam Neeson to play Armitage and Mark Wahlberg to portray lead protagonist, Case. The concept art above from Amro Attia has leaked but no one has been able to confirm which characters its for. The above images could be Armitage and Case or two different designs for the latter.
SYNOPSIS:Case was the hottest computer cowboy cruising the information superhighway, jacking his consciousness into cyberspace, soaring through tactile lattices of data and logic, rustling encoded secrets for anyone with the money to buy his skills. Then he double-crossed the wrong people, who caught up with him in a big way -- and burned the talent out of his brain, micron by micron. Banished from cyberspace, trapped in the meat of his physical body, Case courted death in the high-tech underworld. Until a shadowy conspiracy offered him a second chance -- and a cure -- for a price.
