He did describe the other script he had been working on as "bleak".

Anyone know of an LA-set sci-fi novel with a 16-year-old mixed-race female protagonist? Snow crash takes place there and has a young female main character but she's not mixed-race in the book as far as I remember...

I wonder if this will be PTA's first film to feature extensive SFX? Although knowing his sensibility I'm guessing it will be more like Alphaville than The Matrix.

Could it be something like Vineland? Young female protagonist(not mixed race though, but the appearance of female ninjas explains the martial arts requirement), cyberpunk setting prevails a certain part of the story, and weird shit that more or less fits sci-fi genre happens all the time.

Ah, interesting. I also recall him saying that there'd been some sci-fi elements in IV which he ended up taking out. Perhaps he's repurposed them into an original script?

Could be months still before we get any kind of official announcement if it doesn't shoot til next summer.

If the Sci fi element is true, I'm thinking some sort of dystopian future setting. Perhaps there's a plan for this to be out in time for the 2024 election? Like a cautionary tale of where society could be heading?

Martial arts!
Sci-fi!
A story he developed with his daughter!

If it's some Very Serious Tarkovsky/William Gibson flick that comments on society, that's great.

But maybe it's just something ridiculous and fun, too. Which is also fine.

I remember him in an interview a few years talking about how the California drought scared him; I imagine the fires must too. Maybe it's something in that vein but set in the future.

If this is being set up with De Luca at Warner Bros there's every chance it'll be cancelled before it starts shooting, of course, given what a state of disarray they're in over there.

It feels like PTA isn't just lucky, but has great connections in the industry that make him bulletproof to any economic reality.
Ascension.

That's a thumbs up if it's true

Connections (DeLuca) helped him on LP [possibly IV too?], the DDL-draw on PT, luck (Ellison) on the Master etc.

Too early for "will it move forward or not" talk for something that is not even officially announced save for a supposed casting process.

Heisenberg

Highly doubt this is being set up at WB. Probably not MGM either. I would guess Focus again.
