First Concept Art for the Neuromancer Movie!

Illustration for article titled First Concept Art for the emNeuromancer/em Movie!

The movie version of William Gibson's ground-breaking book Neuromancer is apparently moving forward — the production company GFM Films put up a page devoted to the film, including this piece of new concept art.

The other piece of info on the page? A news item confirming that Liam Neeson has been offered the role of Armitage, and Mark Wahlberg has been offered the role of Case. These are both "pay or play" offers — apparently meaning that if the film doesn't get made, Neeson and Wahlberg still get money.

The concept art above is the work of Amro Attia, who's worked with director Vincenzo Natali in the past. And Bleeding Cool points out that Attia posted another piece of art on his blog back in December, apparently showing Case in the film:

The other production company involved in the film is Seven Arts Entertainment — their site is down, but the Google cache shows a couple news items. One showing that superstar producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is on board, the other showing the film has financing from Prodigy Pictures worth $60 million. So fingers crossed, Natali is actually going to get to bring his vision of Gibson's amazing debut novel to life.

Sorry, that's horribly generic looking, like something from a cyberpunk RPG sourcebook published in the late '90s. The last thing you want to do in a Neuromancer movie is make it look like 99% of everything that's come before it.

I quite like this Moebius-influenced illustration instead.
