Ironic isn't though, Big Brother is Watching used to sound so ominous and threatening. Now the government knows who we're talking to, and likely what we're saying, while corporations know many of our thoughts, plot our behavior patterns and we don't seem to care much, just say, gimme more, gimme more. Our complacency is what's pretty frightening to me.
So ... Paul Greengrass has been hired to direct the film based on a script by James Graham. Graham also wrote the book for an upcoming musical adaptation of Finding Neverland. Which could be heaven or well, you know, hell!
Greengrass is the director best known for Captain Phillips with Tom Hanks, and the Bourne movies and have you heard? He and Matt Damon are reteaming for numero four. Not sure what that does for Jeremy Renner and his Bourne Legacy off-shoots but knowing Damon will Be Bourne Again pleases me greatly. Not usually what I'd call my kind of flick, but I could watch the Bourne Indentity with Damon and Franka Potente as Maria, the woman he falls in love with, anytime. Such a strong team, a true partnership, which is my idea of romantic perfection. We're in this thing together.
Let's take a look at the trailer for the magnificent looking John Hurt/Richard Burton version and see if that sparks some casting ideas. I'd love to hear your thoughts. Oh yeah, I know you're out there, and I even know where you came from. But have no fear, unless you share them with me, I don't know your thoughts. Not yet, anyway.
