Simon Kinberg, producer on X-Men films and an Oscar nominee for The Martian, is attached to produce. He'll be taking on a film adaptation of William Gibson's 1984 novel Neuromancer, which remains as one of the best-known works in the cyberpunk space.

After departing the DEADPOOL sequel, it was said that Fox was working hard to find a major project which Tim Miller and his VFX studio, Blur, would be able to build from the ground up; NEUROMANCER will apparently be that project.

Gibson's book, his first, is the debut entry in the Sprawl trilogy, and Neuromancer earned rave reviews upon its publication, winning the Nebula Award, the Hugo Award, and the Philip K. Dick Award. Directors Chris Cunningham and Chuck Russell previously worked on different versions of a script, while music video director Joseph Kahn was attached to the project in 2007.

Here's the logline for NEUROMANCER according to Deadline: "Case was one of the best console cowboys until he stole from one of his employers, who in turn damaged his nervous system so that he can not access cyberspace anymore". Meanwhile, Tim Miller has been lining up a series of big dates in the hopes of finding someone new, but all of his projects increasingly come across as if they're hastily chosen rebounds. Then, it was announced that he was planning a Terminator movie with James Cameron, just as soon as Cameron gets the rights to the franchise organized and gets a little headspace clear after all his Avatar plans have finished consuming his attention. That film is expected to start production next spring. But now a new and very mysterious employer recruits him for a last-chance run. But he's given a shot at getting back in the saddle when he is hired to complete the ultimate hack: one on an artificial intelligence orbiting Earth'.
