Charlize Theron Set to Star in ‘Jane’ Based on the Life of Sci-Fi Author Phillip K. Dick

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron is set to star in Jane. 

The 46-year-old actress has signed up for Alfonso Cuaron’s upcoming movie that is based on the life of the sci-fi author Phillip K. Dick. The film tells the story of the relationship between the writer and his twin sister Jane, who died just six weeks after her birth. Her death affected Dick personally and is thought to have influenced his work.

Dick’s work inspired Blade Runner and Total Recall. It also inspired his novel The Man in the High Castle ,which was adapted into a TV series by Amazon.

Theron, Cuaron and Phillip’s daughter Isa Hackett are all producing the movie, which is being developed with an eye for Oscar-winners Charlize and Alfonso to star in and direct respectively.

“The story of ‘Jane’ has been with me for as long as I can remember,” Isa Hackett says. “Jane, my father’s twin sister who died a few weeks after birth, was at the centre of his universe. Befitting a man of his unique imagination, this film will defy the conventions of the biopic and embrace the alternate reality Phillip 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.” Hackett adds.

No word yet on a possible release date. But we’ll keep you posted as more details on the project surface.
