William Gibson’s Iconic Neuromancer Coming to Apple TV+ #cyberpunk
The Illuminerdi has broken the news that an Apple TV+ series based on William Gibson’s iconic 1984 cyberpunk novel, Neuromancer, is in the works.
We at The Illuminerdi can exclusively reveal that Apple TV+ is looking to adapt the acclaimed book Neuromancer as a long-form TV series. The book is considered one of the earliest and best-known works in the cyberpunk genre. Set in a futuristic Japan, the show will follow the hacker, Case, who after breaking out of prison agrees to do one last job that brings him in contact with a forceful AI.
The streamer has offered Top Gun: Maverick star Miles Teller the lead role of Case, a hacker, antihero, and drug addict. If he agrees to Apple’s offer, the actor is looking at a one-season deal.
Teller is best known for the box-office smash hit, starred in acclaimed films like Whiplash and War Dogs, and set foot in the superhero genre with 2015’s Fantastic Four. He was also the lead of last year’s Paramount Plus original limited series The Offer. He is set to star in the next film from Doctor Strange and The Black Phone director Scott Derrickson, alongside Anya Taylor-Joy.
Probably the best news, beyond the announcement of the series itself is the fact that William Gibson will be an Executive Producer.
