Bill Pullman is in negotiations to portray celebrated science fiction author Philip K. Dick, (A Scanner Darkly and Blade Runner) in the independent film Panasonic, according to Production Weekly.

Musician Matthew Wilder, best known for his 1983 hit "Break My Stride," is scheduled to direct the film next month.

Production Weekly gives a brief synopsis of the film: The lines between reality and perception blur in this comic journey into the life and mind (literally!) of one of sci-fi's most brilliant authors. Paranoid conspiracies of the highest order, drug-fueled inter-dimensional shifts, and 1970's pop culture combine for the mind-bending adventure of the century.
