Neuromancer at long last

(Canadian) Vincenzo Natali is set to direct a film adaptation of (Canadian) William Gibson's Neuromancer.

... Natali is sticking with Canadian financiers. As such, they will be far less beholden to wussing out the ending or making the whole damned thing safe for mass audiences. If I were an investor, frankly, I'd see this as a missed opportunity for a name brand property. But Canada doesn't play that way. This is a country with nationalized health care and light rail in all major cities. Have you been to Calagary? The damned town and its ridiculous + 15 is straight out of Caprica. Natali and Gibson, of course, both hail from the Great White North. They may both be heaadbanging to the "The Fountain of Lamneth" in celebration right now.

Spoilers aside, I am happy to explain the ending of the novel to anyone who still doesn't get it. No Geddy Lee required, promise.
