    Next year will see the release of The Owl in Daylight, a biopic on the life of science fiction writer Dick, whose work was the basis for films such as Blade Runner, Total Recall and Minority Report. Giamotti is currently filming in the central role.

    Huh. Didn't know they were making another Philip K. Dick biopic.

    Bill Pullman recently made an unauthorized one.

    Was Philip K. Dick known for his prettiness?

    Poor Paul -- "too pretty" to play John Adams, "too ugly" to play Philip K Dick. [​IMG]

    Cool. Paul G. is one of my favorite actors, and PKD does have an interesting life story to tell.
