2084, the dystopian work inspired by 1984 and Matrix will be released in theaters
Paramount Studios will film a new science fiction film entitled "2084", written by Mattson Tomlin and defined as an updated account of George Orwell's dystopia, "1984", with reminiscences to "The Matrix" and "Inception".
The new project aroused the interest of several Hollywood studios, although finally, it will be the producer of the saga "Transformers", Lorenzo di Bonaventura, and Paramount who will bring to the big screen the script of Tomlin, who has written the next film "The Batman" which will star Robert Pattinson.
The film's plot will focus on an authoritarian society emerging from a period of global destruction in which the lives of citizens are controlled in detail and where the discovery of young love will alter the established order, the media reported Tuesday.
The advance of the plot is directly reminiscent of the novel "1984", which introduced the concept of "Big Brother" in a totalitarian society imagined by George Orwell that has inspired films, series, television formats, and even advertising campaigns.
Moreover, according to sources cited by The Hollywood Reporter, the tone of the film will be inspired by the classic "The Matrix" by the Wachowski sisters and the film "Inception" by Christopher Nolan.
Although further details of the project, such as the person who will direct it, are unknown, the idea has attracted attention in Hollywood since its producer was responsible for promoting and supporting the recording of "The Matrix" at Warner Bros. Studios.
Di Bonaventura also bought the rights to adapt the Harry Potter books, written by J.K. Rowling, to the big screen.
