Another Philip Dick flick: ‘Next Year’

Another day, another Philip K. Dick story on the way to the bigscreen: Lila 9th and Electric Shepherd Productions have optioned “Now Wait For Last Year” with Ted Kupper adapting.

Barrie M. Osborne (“Lord of the Rings”), Cameron Lamb and the author’s daughter Isa Dick Hackett are producing with Dan Keston, Laura Leslie, Christopher Tricarico and Kathy Morgan exec producing.

Story is set in the distant future in a war between “the starmen” and earth and revolves around an organ transplant doctor who gets mixed up in the politics between both groups. Morgan is structuring the financing for the pic.

More than 10 Dick novels and short stories have been adapted for the screen, including “Blade Runner,” “Total Recall,” “Minority Report” and “The Adjustment Bureau.” Dick died in 1982.

The producers will now work on finding a director, with plans to start production in the third quarter of 2012.

Osborne and Lamb recently finished production on the indie “Syrup” starring Kellan Lutz, Amber Heard and Shiloh Fernandez.

Kupper is repped by Digital Conspiracy. Osborne is repped by Gersh.
