The drama based on Bradbury’s 1953 dystopian novel depicts a future where media is an opiate, history is outlawed and ‘firemen’ burn books. A young fireman named Montag forsakes his world, battles his mentor Beatty and struggles to regain his humanity.
YouTube personality Lilly Singh (whose credits include Ice Age: Collision Course and Bad Moms) will be playing the role of Raven, a tabloid vlogger who works with the fire department to spread the ministry’s propaganda by broadcasting their book-burning raids to fans. Ramin Bahrani is attached to direct the telepic and co-write the script with Amir Naderi. David Coatsworth will serve as a producer on the project, while Michael B. Jordan will serve as an executive producer under his Outlier Productions banner alongside Brace Cove Productions’ Sarah Green, Alan Gasmer and Peter Jaysen.
