"Deadpool" director Tim Miller is set to helm an adaptation of the sci-fi novel "Neuromancer" for Fox.
The 1984 cyberpunk novel, written by William Gibson, centers on Henry Dorsett Case, a disgraced computer hacker living in Japan who was punished for stealing from his employer by being rendered unable to access The Matrix, a worldwide virtual reality network.
Simon Kinberg will be producing the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A writer has not yet been attached.
Miller made his directorial debut last year with Fox's "Deadpool". He dropped out of its follow-up in October over creative differences.
