In 1951 Ray Bradbury delivered an American classic with his novel, Fahrenheit 451. In 2017 a film adaptation of the novel is in the works and the hype is real. Bradbury’s story follows a firefighter in a world where firefighters start fires rather than put them out. The story is all about censorship, and fighting against what society tells you is right or wrong. The lead will be played by Michael B. Jordan and today he revealed the first image from the film.
The image paired with the caption gives the general audience an idea for the premise of the film. Also pictured is the film’s co-star Michael Shannon. Shannon will play Jordan’s partner.
The arrival of this film should be highly anticipated for multiple reasons. First is the talent working on this film. Besides Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon, Sofia Boutella, Lilly Singh, and Laura Harrier will also be in the film with talented director Amir Naderi helming.
The films content is another reason why people should be excited for this film. In our current political climate, Bradury’s novel is more important of a story than ever. The censorship that takes place in the novel and the society it creates can draw comparisons from the current hostility being directed at the free press from the executive branch of the United States government.
The film is expected to be aired towards the end of this year, or sometime in 2018. In the meantime, let us know in the comments section below if you’re excited for the film.
