Richard Linklater (School of Rock) To Do PKD's "A Scanner Darkly"
Richard Linklater (School of Rock) is attached to direct a proposed movie based on Philip K. Dick's semi-autobiographical novel A Scanner Darkly, Production Weekly reported. The 1977 book deals with the drug crisis and the relationships between the sexes, among other things, the site reported.

The novel centers on Bob Arctor, a dealer in the lethally addictive drug called Substance D, and Fred, a police agent assigned to arrest him, the site reported. The catch is that Substance D splits a user's brain into two distinct, adversarial personalities, and Arctor doesn't realize that he's really hunting himself.

1. YES! that is going to be awesome. anyone see Waking Life?
Linklater is an artistic, psychedelic visionary. i trust his insight and styles will compliment Philip K. Dick's writing well.

this is going to be cool.

2. If he does this in the "Waking Life" style...
It's gonna be a great movie...I'm glad he's gonna animate it (I couldn't figure how they'd make the suit that changes). It's one of my all time favorite books, so I'm glad an artist is gonna do it instead of a hack (i.e. Total Recall).
