HBO Films Adaptation of ‘Fahrenheit 451’

HBO has put a film adaptation of the novel “Fahrenheit 451” into development, Variety has learned. Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon are attached to star.

Based on Ray Bradbury’s classic novel, the TV film depicts a future where media is an opiate, history is outlawed and “firemen” burn books.

Jordan will play Montag, a young fireman who forsakes his world, battles his mentor and struggles to regain his humanity. Shannon will play Beatty, Montag’s fireman captain and mentor.

The film will be directed by Ramin Bahrani, whose previous films include Man Push Cart, Chop Shop (which Roger Ebert cited as the 6th best film of the 2000s), and, most recently, 99 Homes. Bahrani will co-write the film with Amir Naderi, writer/director of The Runner and Vegas: Based on a True Story.
