Fun fact: Philip K. Dick did not live to see a single one of his stories on the silver screen. He died of a stroke barely two months before the release of Blade Runner in 1982. A total of nine movies have been adapted from his body of work, and now, 28 years later, Ridley Scott is returning to make it an even ten. The Guardian reports that the director of Blade Runner and Gladiator will be the executive producer of a BBC television adaptation of The Man in the High Castle, an alternate-history novel about the Axis powers winning WWII. (OK, so it's not technically number ten because this is being produced for TV, not theaters, but fuck you.)

Howard Brenton, who writes the incredible Spooks, is adapting the novel.

And because there is not nearly enough science fiction in this post, here's Philip K Dick introducing you all to the concept of the Uncanny Valley.
