Here's hoping someone can go to this and report back:
From Green Shadow's mentioned article:
RE: Frank Darabont - "His most recent feature as director, "The Majestic," starring Jim Carrey, was released in December 2001. His next film as director will be an adaptation of Bradbury's classic science fiction novel "Fahrenheit 451."
Maybe with this close friendship and similar views of an update of the novel, some great things will be coming to fruition. Maybe...
