Michel Gondry to tackle sci-fi Ubik

Director Michel Gondry is developing a screen adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s sci-fi novel.

Gondry is reportedly attached to adapt and direct Ubik for Film Rites (run by Oscar winner Steven Zaillian).

The novel follows a man (Joe Chip) who works for an anti-psi security firm that blocks telepathic spying and other paranormal tricks. An assignment on the Moon doesn’t go as planned, resulting in Joe becoming involved in a mystery that involves time-slips and a cure-all known as Ubik.

Gondry’s Green Hornet is currently in Irish cinemas.
