Noah Oppenheim Heads to Nineteen Eighty-Four

Source: Deadline, ComingSoon

June 16, 2012

Imagine Entertainment has set screenwriter Noah Oppenheim to adapt their big screen remake of George Orwell's dystopian sci-fi classic Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Released in 1948, the novel tells of a future world called Oceania wherein individuality and privacy are outlawed and citizens live in service to an all-seeing entity called "Big Brother."

Imagine teamed with street artist Shepard Fairey (best known for the now-iconic Barack Obama "Hope" campaign poster) and Fairey will serve as producer bringing the novel back to the screen.

Nineteen Eighty-Four was previously made into a film, directed by Michael Radford in the year 1984 with John Hurt starring as the lead, Winston Smith.

Oppenheim, a relative screenwriting newcomer, has also been working on the upcoming remakes of WarGames and Snabba Cash.
