In the future, Big Brother won’t just be watching our every move, spying and totally cramping our fun, but it’ll also be remaking all of our movies. Oh wait, did I say in the future? I mean, it started 10 years ago. Run, kids, run!!!!! Anyhoo. Imagine Entertainment is remaking George Orwell’s “1984″, and has set Noah Oppenheim to bang out a script for them. Winston Smith works for the Ministry of Truth in London, chief city of Airstrip One. Big Brother stares out from every poster, the Thought Police uncover every act of betrayal. When Winston finds love with Julia, he discovers that life does not have to be dull and deadening, and awakens to new possibilities. Despite the police helicopters that hover and circle overhead, Winston and Julia begin to question the Party; they are drawn towards conspiracy. Yet Big Brother will not tolerate dissent even in the mind. »
