A new movie version of George Orwell’s famous novel 1984 may be in the works, with artist Shepard Fairey possibly in the role of producer, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Fairey was working with Brian Grazer and Ron Howard of Imagine Entertainment to secure the rights to the novel from Orwell’s estate. When they learned Julie Yorn of LBI Entertainment was simultaneously working towards the same goal, they decided to approach the project together, according to the Reporter.

The group is currently looking for writers before approaching a studio, according to the entertainment industry website.

Fairey is a graphic and graffiti artist who was first known for his iconic Andre the Giant posters in the skateboarding and graffiti communities before the world came to know him as the man who was sued by AP for his poster of Barack Obama.

1984 tells the story of a dystopian world that is perpetually in a state of war. Individual freedoms are suppressed in order for the upper political class to retain control of the population. Protagonist Winston Smith works at the Ministry of Truth revising newspaper articles to align with the regime's current political outlook, but beneath his outward allegiances to the regime he experiences personal conflict.

The novel was first published in 1949. The most recent film version came out in 1984, according to the Reporter.

They should hold a news conference and just do it not a movie but sort of a news conference so like that nothing gets leaked out!

They tried to stop Atlas shrugged ... It would be so awesome if they would do it! Just do it!  use there influence against the machine. The NWO is so arrogant they may even like it .. the in plain site thing, they think the populous would shrug it off as just entertainment. It would be cool though

I think the way they should do it is is just not tell anyone just go and film it and put there not promote it beforehand just shock the world. It would take the world by storm and see what the world reaction would be but even then the damage controlled media would find away around it.

yes Kryke i heard that too.  Don't get wrong Maxwell has very valid information i learned a lot from him. I would caution anyone who watches his stuff to be able to discern where his research ends and his personal agenda begins. He absolutely hates christianity and makes one of the best cases against it i have ever seen. I consider myself to have a pretty good foundation not from religious leaders but from my heart and the holy spirit and he had me almost convinced that everything i believed was a fairy tale..

Right, they do have so much to lose, and if they play their hand at the wrong time it's all for nothing and they lose all credibility. So much in life is about timing isn't it?

Tough to say what happened. Maybe they are just waiting for the right timing. Perhaps they were threatened, who knows. One can only speculate.

suzie, I hear you about Maxwell. I don't agree with everything he says either but the man did all the tough research way back when. We have the luxury of the internet, and documentary films to study, networks for exposition on related topics etc. Jordan Maxwell actually traveled to University libraries and all over the world to piece together what much of us understand today. He did more than most realize to complete our understanding. Many of the people we are influenced by credit Maxwell at least in part for their understanding.

In the opening scene in The Da Vinci Code, professor, Robert Langdon is giving a slide presentation to a group of University students. Almost the exact same slide presentation Maxwell use to give at his lectures. I heard Maxwell bitching about how they took his presentation, used it in the movie, but never gave him credit lol.

They also have a lot more to lose than your average person..  it must be hard to be so comfortable and famous and all ..ruination is probably a fate worse than death to them. We will see who the true patriots of the world are soon enough. All they have to do is say someone is a pedofile  or something like that and even just the charge is detrimental..  Fame what is the price?
