Charlize Theron and director of Gravity to make a biopic of the creator of Blade Runner

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Charlize Theron and Alfonso Cuarón have teamed up to work on a biopic of Philip K. Dick, whose work inspired the classic Blade Runner.

They will be the producers of the project, which is expected to be released by Amazon Prime Video. In addition, Charlize Theron is expected to star, while Alfonso Cuarón will direct.

The feature film will be titled “Jane”, and will not be a traditional biopic. Instead, the project will be a mixture of fact and fiction.

The story will be told from the perspective of Jane, the twin sister of Philip K. Dick. However, in real life, Jane tragically died just six weeks after her birth.

This had a great impact on the family, which the writer carried throughout his life. In addition, it also inspired his works.

The idea, therefore, is to explore what would have happened if Jane had the opportunity to grow up alongside her twin brother.

The feature film is based on an idea by Isa Hackett, the daughter of Philip K. Dick. The project should gain new details soon.

Charlize Theron continues her career high, having recently appeared as Clea in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (Doctor Strange 2).

Alfonso Cuarón is an acclaimed Hollywood director, who has worked on films such as Gravity, Children of Hope and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

There is still no release date for Jane, Alfonso Cuarón’s film with Charlize Theron.
