Brian Grazer and Ron Howard's Imagine Entertainment is planning a reboot of the George Orwell's classic totalitarian sci fi, Nineteen Eighty-Four.

The classic novel takes place in a dystopian society in a perpetual state of war, which in turn leads to a state of paranoia. It follows Winston Smith, who works for a government branch called the Ministry of Truth, where he alters facts and histories but secretly harbors desires of rebellion (as well as desires of a forbidden love affair).

This project is still in early development.
