A number of exciting productions based on Heinlein’s works have been announced in recent months.
On May 23, 2012 Sony Pictures announced it had picked up the Spierig Brother’s science fiction action-thriller, Predestination. The film, which will star Ethan Hawke, is based on the Heinlein short story All You Zombies. The Spierig Brothers, Michael and Peter, are quoted as saying, “The short is on many sci-fi lists as one of the greatest short stories of all time, and the mother of all time paradox tales. Heinlein is considered one of the great science fiction masters alongside Phillip K. Dick, Isaac Asimov, and Arthur C. Clarke.”
Shooting of Predestination is set to start in Australia in early 2013.
The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag is expected to go into production this fall, co-produced by Red Granite Pictures with Mythology Entertainment, Phoenix Pictures and Mystery Clock Cinema.
