People have been trying to make a movie of William Gibson's Neuromancer since the mid-1980s, and now Splice/Cube director Vincenzo Natali is trying to make it happen. But for a few years, Joseph Kahn, the director of tons of music videos plus Torque and Detention, was hard at work on a Neuromancer film.

Artist Dan Fraga even created some storyboards for an action sequence set in Istanbul, when Molly and Case are driving around in a Mercedes, and he's posted them on his blog. They give a sense of just how much of a conventional Hollywood action movie this film might have been, at least if this stuff is anything to go by.
