Last August we learned that Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, A Field in England) would be directing an adaptation of JG Ballard's 1975 novel High-Rise, which got us all kinds of excited. Now that a star has been attached, that excitement has increased tenfold. Read on!
A film adaptation of JG Ballard's novel High Rise has long been talked about, with plans dating all the way back to the 1970s. More recently, Splice director Vincenzo Natali was attached to the project, a plan that didn't quite work out. But it looks like the wait is finally over.
Visionary director Vincenzo Natali is nearing his next project, and while not exactly the usual horror sci-fi goodies we're used to from the man, we're sure it'll still pack enough punch to satisfy genre fans. Especially since the great Richard Stanley is penning the screenplay!
With a big opening weekend ahead of him, Vincenzo Natali took a few moments at a recent Q&A in LA to let fans in on just what the visionary director would like to tackle in the future.
