Filmmaker Ridley Scott is tackling a Phillip K. Dick project for Amazon


The works of author Phillip K. Dick have proven fertile ground for classic sci-fi movies like Total Recalland A Scanner Darkly, and The Man in the High Castle is up next.

Except, well, it’s making its debut on the small screen, by way of Amazon Studios and executive producer Ridley Scott (pictured above), according to Deadline. For the unfamiliar, Castle takes place in a 1962 where the Allied Powers were defeated in World War II, and, as a result, Germany and Japan began an occupation of the United States – Scott’s sci-fi phase apparently isn’t stopping anytime soon.

With the legendary filmmaker working on Halo: Nightfall, the Prometheus and Blade Runner sequels and now this, we’re even tempted to call it a trend.
