Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with info on a new film based off of a Philip K. Dick story. This time we have Lee Tamahori helming an adaptation of Dick's story THE GOLDEN MAN. The adaptation is called NEXT and stars Jessica Biel and Nicolas Cage. Cage plays a dude that can see future events and their outcomes who is being pursued by the FBI. They want to use his abilities to prevent a global terrorist attack. Biel's the love interest and apparently in the clutches of the evil terrorists.
I have not read the short story, but after a quick search I found a blurb saying it's about the purging of mutants before they affect the human gene pool. Mutants, terrorists... whatever. Hopefully there's a solid script beneath this one. If not, we can always look forward to Richard Linklater's A SCANNER DARKLY, eh?
