First Fahrenheit 451 photo with Michael B. Jordan & Michael Shannon
HBO Films has revealed a first-look photo from Fahrenheit 451, the currently-in-production sci-fi adaptation starring Michael B. Jordan (Creed) and Michael Shannon (Man of Steel). Check out the Fahrenheit 451 photo in the gallery below!
Based on Ray Bradbury’s classic dystopian novel which depicts a future where media is an opiate, history is outlawed and “firemen” burn books, Fahrenheit 451 follows Montag (Jordan), a young fireman who forsakes his world, battles his mentor Beatty (Shannon) and struggles to regain his humanity.
Laura Harrier (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Sophia Boutella (The Mummy) and Lilly Singh (Bad Moms) also star.
The film is directed by Ramin Bahrani (Man Push Cart, 99 Homes), who also serves as executive producer with Sarah Green, Michael B. Jordan, Alan Gasmer and Peter Jaysen. David Coatsworth produces. Ramin Bahrani and Amir Naderi are co-writers.
The book was previously adapted to film by director François Truffaut in 1966 in a version starring Oskar Werner and Julie Christie.
