Sofia Boutella ("The Mummy", "Kingsman: The Secret Service") stars as Clarisse, an informant caught between the competing interests of Montag and Beatty.
This is the story we are set to see in HBO's latest Television Movie, Farenheit 451, which is set to be a gritty take on Ray Bradbury's classic tale.
Bahrani said he never had the opportunity to meet with Bradbury before his death but did an extensive amount of research, watching and reading multiple interviews and more.
"We started working on this a year before the election and politically", explained Bahrani, "things are [now] going in a very odd direction, and it's been going in that direction for awhile".
Unfortunately, Fahrenheit 451 feels more relevant today than anyone probably would've guessed upon publication.
"I don't want to focus so much on [President Donald Trump] because I don't want to excuse the 30 to 40 years prior to that; he's just an exaggeration of it now", he said. Ramin Bahrani (99 Homes) and Amir Naderi (Vegas: Based on a True Story) adapted Ray Bradbury's bestselling novel for the screen, with Bahrani directing and executive producing. We elected [politicians] over many decades, we're electing this thing in my pocket [pulls out his cellphone]. The movie has no release date yet, but stars Michael B. Jordan (of Creed and Fruitvale Station) as Montag and Michael Shannon as his fire captain, Beatty. "The speed at which [technology] is advancing, perhaps exponentially - I am concerned, are we going to be able to get ahead of the dam?" To Bahrani's mind, those concerns have actualized with the rise of social media and wikis and peoples' inclinations to just read headlines instead of full articles.
"It's not hard to control what is on the internet given that things are so centralized", he said. We can get into tweets, wiki entries, which are basically even shorter entries of readers' digests. Bradbury says we've asked for this. Politically, things are going in a very unusual direction in terms of what is real and what is not real - and I think it's been going in that direction for a long time. Now the Network have released a teaser trailer to give us an idea of what to expect.
