"UBIK" the movie

I'll hope for the best...
"UBIK" wasn't my first PKD novel, but it was the one that turned me into a
OCD Philip K. Dick reader & collector
(way back in the '70s & still chuggin' on)

Re: "UBIK" the movie
I think the story will translate well to screen, but will the timing be right? Have there been too many stories in recent years dwelling on alternate realities, people realising that their reality is just a virtual reality...? PKD may have inspired many of these either directly or indirectly, but will a new film based solidly on a PKD novel just arrive at the tail end of a lot of others. Needless to say this film will succeed only if it is done exceptionally well. Personally, I think Eye in the Sky would be better bet for a strikingly new film.
