So it stands a chance of making it out of development hell this time? :demon:

It will be bloody difficult to adapt to the screen.

Casting will matter a lot.

How on earth they will show cyberspace, IDK

I don't see how they hope to possibly follow the genre defining Johnny Mnemonic.

Watching that was one of the more painful experiences of my life.

I don't know why they didn't just film the original short story, it wouldn't have been difficult, and would have made a good film.

Imagine all the bits about Johnny home-machining his shotgun, etc, the backstory.
