Thanks to PsychoHam for the link to the trailers site, I checked out the Paycheck trailer (http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/paycheck/large.html).


Personnally I think it looks pretty good. It has some big names behind it, John Woo (Face Off & M:I2) and the geeza that wrote Blade Runner and Minority Report. To see the official website click here (http://www.paycheckmovie.com/).

the geeza that wrote Blade Runner and Minority Report

You mean the guy that wrote the screenplays? Or Phil K Dick?

I have no idea, I found the name of the writer, but it didn't mention BR or MR... as you can see on the site, it just says 'from the writer of...' :?

Yes, I see, it says "from the author of" which implies someone writing a book I think. Of course, what they've forgotten is that no-one actually wrote a book called 'Bladerunner'...

Unoriginal plot but still looks damn good.

Based on a short story by Philip Dick.

Hard to say whether it's unoriginal since PKD really kick started this kind of paranoid SF. The film may turn out to be old rope though...

Oh and I see Steven Soderburgh has A Scanner Darkly lined up - I'll be ummm.. interested to see that one. Not a book I would ever have thought would be filmed - or even filmable.
