Orwell's 1984 Is Coming To The Big Screen Thanks To Obama "Hope" Artist

| Filed under: Film FlickersBarack ObamaBookz


George Orwell's 1984 could be getting another adaptation soon, thanks to a little Hope!

Ron Howard and Brian Grazer's Imagine Entertainment and Julie Yorn's LBI Entertainment are tag-teaming to bring the book to the big screen, and its all because of one particular street artist.

Shepard Fairey, the creator of Obama's iconic "Hope" poster brought the project to Imagine and LBI, and could serve as a producer once a deal gets finalized.

Imagine and Fairey were looking to snag the novel about a dystopian and dictatorial state and found out Yorn wanted it too so they decided to hook up.

The new adaptation will be the first since (wait for it!) 1984 and the producers are currently looking for writers.

    Interesting, since Obama and his administration are leading us toward a "1984" scenario.

    We do we need a film version of this book? We are living it out right now with the current administration. Obama aka Big Brother.
