1. Ubik is/was under most recent option to be filmed by Michel Gondry

who directed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Here is a website (that hasn't been updated in 2 years): http://collider.com/michel-gondry-ubik-philip-k-dick/76478/

PKD wrote a screenplay, Ubik - The Screenplay, that was written in 1974 for a French director and published in 1985.

The published screenplay was relatively hard to find until republished in hc and trade sc editions in 2008 and 2012.

Linklater, who did A Scanner Darkly, had an option prior to Gondry but did not make the film so there have been at least 3 stabs at developing the book to film.

I'd like to see a quality production of The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch. John Lennon once purchased on option to film 3SPE.

BTW Philip with one "l".
