Promo Poster for adaptation of Ballard’s High Rise
The recently deceased, and legendary
SF writer J.G. Ballard’s High Rise is being adapted to film by Vicenzo Natali. I feel about Ballard the way I do Thomas Disch (who passed away last year) in that specifically their catalog of work just ooozes with potential for big screen adaptation. I don’t even mean direct translations, but in the way that we see numerous PKD works find their way on film (some uncredited).
Of course, Ballard has had some of his work adapted already (and their seems to be news that Samuel L. Jackson is attached to another) including Empire of the Sun (Steven Spielberg) and Crash (the Cronenberg not Paul Haggis film – which is also excellent).
The poster is as large as they have it – sorry, but I can’t find a larger image. Here is the book (as you’d expect their are numerous covesr, and I may be wrong, but I think this is out of print in the U.S.:
Within the concealing walls of an elegant forty-storey tower block, the affluent tenants are hell-bent on an orgy of destruction. Cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on ‘enemy’ floors and the once-luxurious amenities become an arena for technological mayhem. . . In this classic visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as the inhabitants of the high-rise, driven by primal urges, recreate a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.
