The Forgotton Movie Producer working on â€˜Nextâ€™ filmPosted by:
Joe Roth, veteran film producer and most recently the producer of science fiction thriller â€˜The Forgottenâ€™, is already working on his next feature film titled â€˜Nextâ€™. This movie will is a big-screen adaptation of a Phillip K. Dick short story titled â€˜The Golden Manâ€™.
There have been a lot of movies based on Dickâ€™s works, most notably Imposter, Minority Report and Paycheck. Although some of those films have done well, the majority of Dick-adaptations have not been block buster hits.
Roth, however, is not daunted by that fact and looks at this story as a completely separate entity from other Dick stories.
Nicolas Cage is set to star in the film while Lee Tamahori (Die Another Day) is slated to direct. Roth shared his thoughts on Mr. Cage and Mr. Tamahori.
Gary Goldman, who previously adapted 1990â€™s Total Recall from another Dick story (We Can Remember it for you Wholesale), adapted â€˜The Golden Manâ€™ to a screenplay for Roth.
Production on the film will begin next year with a hopeful 2006 release.
