Amazon Studios has just made a huge casting announcement for ‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams‘ as Lara Pulver (‘Edge of Tomorrow’,’Da Vinci’s Demons’) will be part of the show. This 10-episode series is already set to star both Terrence Howard and Anna Paquin in the episode “Real Life” and will be written by Ronald D. Moore and directed by Jeffrey Reiner. The idea behind the series is to bring to life the short stories of this iconic science fiction author.
At this time there is no word as to who Pulver will be playing in the show or if she will be sharing screen time with either Howard or Paquin.
There is a slew of writers working on bringing this project to life who are both British and American, so this will truly feel like an anthology series when it comes to the small screen. Credits will include Jack Thorne, Moore, Michael Dinner, Tony Grisoni, Matthew Graham, David Farr, Dee Rees, and Travis Beacham. The series has Moore, Bryan Cranston, Michael Dinner, and Philip K. Dick‘s daughter, Isa Dick Hacket on board as Executive Producers. There is such a body of raw talent here that it would be pretty difficult to not produce a fan favorite for science fiction fans.
With ‘The Man in the High Castle’ being such a huge success for Amazon’s streaming service it comes as no surprise that they would be able to work out a deal to bring more of Dick’s work to life.
