High Rise: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Finally, the long-gestated live-action adaptation of J.G. Ballard's High Rise is on the way with Tom Hiddleston on board and we have our First Look at the first survival and existential horror film. 



We were last entranced by Ben Wheatley with his recent film, A Field in England, yet another piece of the English film-maker's body of work that defies genre categorization yet displaying an exciting vision of peculiar grandeur. This, in turn explained our excitement over the news that Wheatley will be in the director's chair for the long-gestated live-action adaptation of J.G. Ballard's 1975 postmodern horror novel, High Rise. 

Entailing the horrific degeneration of human in self-imposed isolation within an exotic luxury high rise building, we have no doubt that Wheatley will be more than capable to put to task for the adaptation given his resume with films that are quite simply not for the squeamish. And to lend more weight to Wheatley's task, it has been announced that the God of Mischief (or Evil) Loki himself, Tom Hiddleston, will be on board in the film of which production is set to begin in June. In the very same Twitter announcement, Wheatley also released an awesome promotional art by artist Jay Shaw to give us a first glimpse to suggest his take on the film.

Hit the jump to check out the cool art by Jay Shaw.
