by Doc on Oct.18, 2013, under Television
Not a ton of details, but Deadline reports that another Philip K. Dick story, Martian Time-Slip is being developed by Electric Shepherd Productions and Isa Dick Hackett, daughter of the author, with Dee Rees (Pariah) writing and planning to direct.
Electric Shepherd Productions is the shingle run by Dick’s children and produced The Adjustment Bureau and has several other films in development including King of the Elves for Disney.
Martian Time-Slip is about an autistic boy named Manfred who appears to be able to see the future. During a land boom on Mars, many try to take advantage of Manfred to see the future and know the value of the land they are buying – but are they seeing the real future, or Manfred’s dark vision of it?
