Imagine Entertainment has plans to bring back to the screen one of the most famous totalitarian science fiction tales of all time. The Hollywood Reporter has word that the studio is planning a big screen remake of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Released in 1948, the novel tells of a future world called Oceania wherein individuality and privacy are outlawed and citizens live in service to an all-seeing entity called “Big Brother.”

In pursuit of the rights, Imagine teamed with street artist Shepard Fairey (best known for the now-iconic Barack Obama “Hope” campaign poster) and Fairey may now serve as producer bringing the novel back to the screen.
