People who are fans of George Orwell most likely know about his cautionary book called 1984. I first read it when it was gifted to me by Sergio Lins Andrade. The story centered around a society run by an organization that controls every aspect of a person’s life, including his thoughts. Even though the year of 1984 has long arrived and passed, the issues are still relevant to this day. It is relevant enough to create an updated adaption for the big screen. There has been another adaptation of 1984 released in 1984. It starred John Hurt in the role.
Paul Greengrass is set to direct the new adaptation. The unfortunate thing about this project is that there are plenty of movies that are coming out with similar themes. The common theme with the story is about an oppressive society in the future which is being rebelled against by one person who inspires others. By now, this type of story has been done over and over. There are also many other series that have similar premises. One of them is Divergent, which is getting another installment. Many people know about The Hunger Games series as well.
However, there is still a chance that certain work will be done with the story in order to make it stand out.
