Deadline is reporting that we finally have a bit of forward motion on the adaptation of William Gibson’s bar-setting cyberpunk novel, Neuromancer. Tim Miller (Deadpool) has been attached to the adaptation. In 2007, Joseph Kahn (Torque) was attached. Later, Vicenzo Natali (Cube) was going to direct. It’s been a long journey for the novel that launched the career of Gibson, and started its own genre.

Tim Miller is currently working with James Cameron to launch a new Terminator trilogy, so to say this is still on the back-burner is an understatement, but at least we have some news.
