Cinematographer Frank Byers ("Boxing Helena") is set to direct, and an indie remake of Jean-Luc Godard's 1965 film noir "Alphaville" says The Wrap.
The story follows Lemmy Caution, who is sent to a dystopian city on a
series of missions by the Outerlands. These include finding a missing
agent, capturing the creator of the city Professor von Braun, and
destroying von Braun's sentient computer system which controls the city
and the minds of its citizens.
Screenwriter Franc Reyes is set to pen the updated script that reflects what’s happening in today’s political climate.
