William Gibson's cyberpunk classic Neuromancer is finally moving forward and is reportedly eyeing two big names to star in it, MovieHole reports.
Offers have made to Mark Wahlberg and Liam Neeson to play the leads in the film, which is set to be directed by Splice's Vicenzo Natali.
"Wahlberg, who has a solid working relationship with the film’s producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura (he cast the former in Four Brothers and Shooter), would play the anti-hero Case. Neeson, who like Wahlberg will receive a pay-or-play deal, would be the twisted tool Armitage," according to the site.
Moviehole adds that their source says filming is expected to finally comment once Natali wraps production on his current film, Haunter. That would mean Neuromancer would probably release in 2014.
