Ridley Scott is turning Philip K. Dicks masterwork, one of the greatest SF novels of all time, "The Man in the High Castle", into a miniseries for the BBC.
If he can pull it off, it will almost certainly go down as the best science fiction film ever (yes I know, it's a miniseries, its still a film), and will be nominated for every award there is.
Scott is one of the few producers who COULD pull it off.... MAYBE.
I just don't think any studio, even the BBC, is going to allow Scott to make the movie that it needs to be; especially since he is producing, but not directing.
It's a HARSH story. A dark story. It's NOT happy. It's not "TV friendly". It's not possible to convey visually...
I just don't see how they can do it.
