"Fahrenheit 451" EP on Bradbury Classic's Relevance Today: "We Asked for This"

Finally, we have a photo of Sofia Boutella as Clarisse, an informant who "gets caught between the competing interests of Montag and Beatty".

Perhaps Bradbury's best-known work, "Fahrenheit 451" was published in 1953 at the height of the Cold War and America's "Red Scare", during which people with dissenting viewpoints - communists and sympathizers - were demonized and marginalized. I don't want us to forget what Bradbury said - that we asked for this.

"Politically things are going in a very odd direction in terms of what is real and what is not real", he continued.

It'll be interesting to see how Fahrenheit 451 is updated for modern times, especially considering how tense today's political and social climate has been. "Because I don't want to excuse the 30, 40 years prior that that", Bahrani insisted.

Bahrani, who co-wrote the telepic alongside Amir Naderi and reteams with Shannon after he starred in their feature 99 Homes, confessed that he told his agent at one point that he should call HBO and refund the network's money because he felt that he couldn't finish the script. Also, "we are electing again this thing in my pocket", he said, pulling out his smartphone.

Along with Jordan, the film will star Michael Shannon as its antagonist (naturally), Sofia Boutella, and YouTuber Lilly Singh.

Scientists criticise trend for raw meat pet food after analysis finds pathogens
Pet owners who are interested in raw meat-based diets should talk to a professional rather than feeding their pets uncooked meat. Four products (11%) contained the parasite Sarcocystis cruzi and four contained Sarcocystis tenella.

"Between technological advancements and politics, I think Bradbury's biggest concern is now". "[The film] is not set in the distant future, like Bradbury's novel, but an alternate tomorrow where technology is here right now - like Amazon's Alexa", he said.

"It's not hard to control what is on the internet given that things are so centralized", he said. Readers Digest, quick short soundbites, destroying the concept of reading, thinking and knowledge, he said.

"Will we actually get ahead of the dam, or will it just be a flood and up to some other generation to bring back all of Bradbury's heroes?"

"We're all guilty of just reading the headlines", the director concluded.

Fahrenheit 451 doesn't have an official release date yet, but it's said to be dropping sometime in the USA spring, which should be around April or May.
