HBO Films has shared the first official photo from Fahrenheit 451, based on Ray Bradbury's novel, and it is, "appropriately, an action shot of firefighter Guy Montag (Michael B. Jordan) letting the flames fly on some contraband reading, while his superior Beatty (Michael Shannon) looks on approvingly," Tor.com reported.
Directed by Ramin Bahrani, the film also stars Laura Harrier, Sophia Boutella and Lilly Singh. It is currently in production, with no word yet on release date. "Seeing as the photo comes from HBO Films, it's safe to assume that this adaptation of Fahrenheit 451, as with the others, will be a movie instead of a television series. It makes sense, as the original book makes for a pretty slim volume, but in an era of Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale expanding its source material, you never know," Tor.com wrote.
