Alden Ehrenreich (Solo) is set to star in an adaption of Aldous Huxley’s dystopian novel Brave New World.
Brave New World imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself.
As citizens of New London, Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne have only ever known a rigid social order, a perfect pharmaceutical called Soma, and a culture of instant gratification and ubiquitous sex. Curious to explore life beyond the strictures of their society, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion. Bernard and Lenina are rescued by John the Savage (Ehrenreich), who escapes with them back to New London.
The arrival of John, a subversive outsider, in the New World, threatens to disrupt the stability of New London’s utopian society.
Brave New World is rumoured to be one of the first shows to be aired through the upcoming NBC streaming service.
