PKD's Flow My Tears Next Story To Go To The Screen

It's being reported in various SF News outlets (best by SFFMedia) that another Philip K Dick story is set to go to the big screen; this time, Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said.

As the writer of the SFFMedia report quite rightly quipped, the story – concerning a celebrity who has to navigate the treacherous envrionment of a 21st Century police-state America after an attack which somehow results in all memory of him being wiped from seemingly everyone – has enough commentary on culture in it to pack several feature films. From Blade Runner to A Scanner Darkly, PKD's just-askew-of-reality stories seem to make compelling cinema.

Here's hoping they do this one right, too.
