Michael B. Jordan & Michael Shannon To Topline ‘Fahrenheit 451’ Movie At HBO

Creed star Michael B. Jordan and Oscar-nominated Michael Shannon have been set to star in Fahrenheit 451, the HBO Films adaptation that has been in development at the premium network. The latest movie version of Ray Bradbury’s iconic sci-fi novel is being directed by Shannon’s 99 Homes helmer Ramin Bahrani, who co-wrote the script with his 99 Homes co-scribe Amir Naderi and is executive producing.

The dystopian novel, originally published in 1953, depicts a future where media is an opiate, history is outlawed and “firemen” burn books. Young fireman Montag (Jordan) forsakes his world, battles his mentor Beatty (Shannon) and struggles to regain his humanity.

I've never read the book, but surprised to see it was published in 1953. I assumed it was older than that.
