Just a few production details from Indie Wire:
SCANNING: Warner Independent Pictures has announced that production has wrapped on the much-buzzed-about Richard Linklater adaptation of Philip K. Dick's "A Scanner Darkly." The film, starring Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey, Jr., Woody Harrelson, Winona Ryder, and Rory Cochrane, was being shot in Austin, Texas. It is about a suburban California cop (Reeves) in a drug-fueled future who has to spy on his friends. The film will use live action photography with rotoscoping animation to create its vision of the future. Warner Indie noted that the rotoscoping process, seen in Linklater's "Waking Life," "has evolved to produce even more emotional impact and detail." Since publication in 1977, Dick's classic has sold more than 20 million books worldwide. The Section Eight/Detour project is being produced by Anne Walker-McBay, Tommy Pallotta, Jonah Smith, Palmer West, and Erwin Stoff. Steven Soderbergh, George Clooney, Jennifer Fox, Ben Cosgrove, and John Sloss are executive producing. Warner Indie, which is co-financing with Smith and West's Thousand Words, plans a fall 2005 release.darkly | from inside the mind of krix at July 02, 2004 11:12 AM .
