It now has folks tossing around words like “astonishing” and “brilliant.”
HIGH-RISE Adaptation to Be Helmed by KILL LIST Director Ben Wheatley | Collider
Ben Wheatley will be the latest director to try and climb J.G. Ballard‘s satirical sci-fi novel High-Rise. Published in 1975, the book, per Empire, “takes place in a tower block, which is supposed to be a gleaming new, exciting and exotic home for its affluent residents, but ends up isolating and factionalizing them into all-out war, with the surface sophistication degenerating to primal savagery.” So it’s pretty much in the violent wheelhouse Wheatley established with his first three movies, Down Terrace, Kill List, and Sightseers.
