Film news about Philip K. Dick's Radio Free Albemuth

Production has wrapped on the film adaptation of Philip K. Dick's novel Radio Free Albemuth. The 10th movie adaptation of a PKD story, the indy movie was directed by John Alan Simon and stars Alanis Morisette. According to Simon, the total shoot took just 24 days and "the entire budget of the picture was less than the majors spend on catering."

I think "Radio Free Albemuth" was the third PKD novel I read. It remains one of my favorites: ferociously topical and warmly human.

Very cool! One of the first PKD novels I ever read, too, and I still love it. Movies never do the original justice, but I'll be keeping an eye on this one.
