When I found out last year that HBO was adapting Ray Bradbury’s masterpiece FAHRENHEIT 451 into a film I was excited, to say the least.
There hasn’t been an adaptation in decades and it just felt like this was the right time in our society to see this powerful work on screen.
Check out the teaser that HBO released today along with some images from the film.
Directed by Ramin Bahrani (99 HOMES), the upcoming film has put together a great cast, including Michael B. Jordan (BLACK PANTHER) as Montag, a young fireman who forsakes his world, battles his mentor and struggles to regain his humanity. Michael Shannon (THE SHAPE OF WATER) will play Beatty, Montag’s fireman captain and mentor. Sofia Boutella (STAR TREK BEYOND) also stars as Clarisse, an informant caught between the competing interests of Montag and Beatty.
Fahrenheit 451 is due out in the spring.
