Jason I saw this, but its kind of old (2005):

Hertzan Chimera (hertzanchimera) | 225 comments there's the Giamatti's biopic called THE OWL IN DAYLIGHT:

there's also a movie that sounds a bit more like what Cronenberg did with Burroughs' NAKED LUNCH, a movie (is it still in production) called YOUR NAME HERE:

Hertzan Chimera (hertzanchimera) | 225 comments THE OWL IN DAYLIGHT, UPDATE:

According to an email received by someone, Tommy Pallotta (the producer of A Scanner Darkly) is 'not' producing "The Owl in Daylight".

According to IMDB's Tony Grisoni entry (Terry Gilliam's co-writer on "fear in loathing in las vegas" and "tideland"), he will be writing the screenplay to "The Owl in Daylight".

There's still nothing recent on Aint It Cool News dotcom. Maybe the film died.

Jason Actually I would sort of prefer that the biopic idea did die. I think just generally more of a focus by the literary community on why his work is so still so relevant his work would be more interesting.

Hertzan Chimera (hertzanchimera) | 225 comments Jason,
you mean a sort of Documentary about writers who attest that PKD has been a big influence on their work, or is still influencing their work?

I wonder how many mainstream writers would agree to be in such a movie, or is P.K. Dick appreciation STILL a niche market?

James Burr | 2 comments Hmmm, a "Naked Lunch" style approach might be interesting. But then again, if you did that you may as well just film "Valis".

you spot that fact that the 'Naked Lunch' comment refers to impregnating fictional entertainment with events from the subject(writer)s real life, as Cronenberg did with the glass-on-the-head scene in that film.
