A Scanner Darkly

Another Philip K. Dick novel is being adapted to the big screen. Starring Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson, Winona Ryder and Rory Cochrane, A Scanner Darkly tells a tale set in the not too distant future, where the war on drugs has been lost, and an undercover cop is set against his friends. It's a Philip K. Dick story, so it's bound to be good if the adaptation doesn't screw too much with it. The movie has an interesting twist with the use of interpolated rotoscoping to transform the live action footage to animation. The trailer gives a preview of what's in store for us in 2006. It looks visually stunning.
