Fahrenheit 451 stars Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon in a future-set story where fireman literally burn books to destroy history so that it can be rewritten.
The remake is getting a lot of attention due to the casting of Michael B. Jordan, who blasted into the big time mainstream following his turn as Killmonger in Marvel’s hugely successful Black Panther.
Not only is Jordan playing a role originally written for a white actor, but he brings along a growing built-in fan base who can’t wait to see what the talented actor does for his next big role.
The official synopsis from HBO reads:
“Ray Bradbury’s classic novel is infused with a decidedly 21st Century sensibility in this dazzling, high-tech thriller. In an American future where the media is an opiate, internet bots control routines, history is truncated or rewritten, and celebrity “firemen” engage in televised search-and-destroy missions to burn books and bring their owners to justice, one zealous fireman begins to question his long-held assumptions about his life’s work. Michael B. Jordan stars as the fireman who has been groomed to replace his captain (Michael Shannon). After meeting a young informant (Sofia Boutella), the fireman makes a dangerous decision to assist a group of underground “Eels” in their plan to preserve the contents of thousands of classic books, arts and culture. Directed by Ramin Bahrani; written by Ramin Bahrani & Amir Naderi.”
