Netflix has acquired film rights to  author JG Ballard’s 1981 sci-fi novel Hello America with plans to turn it into a feature film which Scott Free’s Ridley Scott, Kevin Walsh and Michael Pruss will produce.


Set a century after America’s financial collapse and abandonment by its people, a group of pioneers return to the ruins of the ‘New World’ on a voyage of rediscovery.

The journey through a ravaged wasteland brings hazards at every turn to the crew, culminating in a showdown with a charismatic leader who plans to unleash his nuclear arsenal against anyone who threatens his power perch.

Scott Free is also working with  Netflix on Andrew Dominik’s War Party starring Tom Hardy.
