HBO has adapted the classic novel Fahrenheit 451, which brings to life the dystopian future created by author Ray Bradbury. The book was previously adapted into a film starring Oskar Werner, Julie Christie and Cyril Cusack in 1966.
This updated version sees an all-star cast led by Michael B. Jordan as well as Michael Shannon who are supported by Sofia Boutella, Laura Harrier, Keir Dullea, Martin Donovan, Grace Lynn Kung, and Jane Moffatt.
Fahrenheit 451 is based on Bradbury’s classic novel. In a future where the media is an opiate, history is rewritten and “firemen” burn books, Jordan plays Guy Montag, a young fireman who struggles with his role as law enforcer and with his “mentor”, played by Shannon.
HBO (Astro Ch411 and HD 431) will debut Fahrenheit 451 in May.
