'The Man in the High Castle' and other Philip K. Dick works slated for film and TV adaptations

Many of science fiction writer Philip K. Dick's works have already been adapted for television and film — and even some of the adaptations have been remade — but it looks like more will soon be on the way. Anonymous Content LLC has secured a first look deal with Electric Sheep Productions, the company founded by the late author's daughters Laura Leslie and Isa Dick Hackett, and is already working on an adaptation of Ubik with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry. Electric Shepherd is also developing film and television projects for other works like The Man In the High Castle, Now Wait for Last Year, King of the Elves, and Electric Ant. "Our father's library and legacy are deeply important to us and we will strive to bring the highest level of integrity to each project we produce under this new arrangement with Anonymous Content," Isa Dick Hackett said in a statement. Unfortunately, there's no word yet on when we can expect any of these adaptations to premiere.
