According to The Hollywood Reporter, the genre-bending project is based on the relationship between Dick and his twin sister, Jane, who died six weeks after birth. The death affected Dick personally, and also influenced his creative work. Theron, Cuarón and Hackett will both produce the project, which is being helmed by Cuarón with Theron attached to star.
As per an official logline, Jane is “a moving, suspenseful and darkly humorous story about a woman’s unique relationship with her brilliant, but troubled twin, who also happens to be the celebrated novelist Philip K. Dick. While attempting to rescue her brother from predicaments both real and imagined, Jane plunges deeper and deeper into a fascinating world of his creation.”
“The story of Jane has been with me for as long as I can remember,” said Hackett. “Jane, my father’s twin sister who died a few weeks after birth, was at the center of his universe. Befitting a man of his unique imagination, this film will defy the conventions of a biopic and embrace the alternate reality Philip K. Dick so desperately desired—one in which his beloved sister survived beyond six weeks of age.”
“It is her story we will tell, her lens through which we will see him and his imagination. There is no better way to honor him than to grant him his wish, if only for the screen.” The companies set to produce Jane are Electric Shepherd Productions, Denver and Delilah Productions, and Esperanto Filmoj.
Alfonso Cuarón’s longtime producer and Head of Esperanto Filmoj, Gabriela Rodriguez, is set to produce alongside Denver and Delilah’s Beth Kono and AJ Dix, and Electric Shepherd Productions’ Head of Film and Television Sarah Scougal and creative executive Kalen Egan. Lila Rawlings, Creative Development at Esperanto Filmoj, will serve as executive producer.
