Share

Jordan and Michael Shannon will be coming together for a TV film adaptation of Ray Bradbury's classic novel "Fahrenheit 451". Young fireman Montag (Jordan) forsakes his world, battles his mentor Beatty (Shannon) and struggles to regain his humanity.

Legendary filmmaker François Truffaut adapted the novel himself in a 1966 film and the idea of another remake has been kicking around for some time. Behind the wheel for this take on the tale is 99 Homes helmer Ramin Bahrani and now, we've got the first bit of casting news for the HBO Films project. Deadline reports that Jordan, who is now filming Marvel's Black Panther, and Shannon, who is now staring at you with his large, intimidating eyes, will headline the film for Ramin Bahrani, who previously directed Shannon in the underseen 99 Homes.

Jordan will executive produce the production, which was put into development over a year ago.

HBO's adaptation of Fahrenheit 451 has found its stars. When Montag meets an idealistic teenager named Clarisse McClellan, he begins to rethink his work and the society he lives in. Shannon just deservedly received a supporting actor Oscar nom for Nocturnal Animals, and of course played General Zod in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

"Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television "family". Since its release, Fahrenheit 451 has remained an enduring classic for its condemnation of censorship and the suppression of free thought.
