“A Scanner Darkly” is set in suburban Orange County, California in a
future where America has lost the war on drugs. When one reluctant
undercover cop is ordered to start spying on his friends, he is launched
on a paranoid journey into the absurd, where identities and loyalties
are impossible to decode. It is a cautionary tale of drug use based on
the novel by Philip K. Dick and his own experiences.



Like a graphic novel come to life, “A Scanner Darkly” will use live
action photography overlaid with an advanced animation process
(interpolated rotoscoping) to create a haunting, highly stylized vision
of the future. The technology, first employed in Richard Linklater’s
2001 film “Waking Life,” has evolved to produce even more emotional
impact and detail.




Directed by: Richard Linklater



Cast: Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson, Winona Ryder and
Rory Cochrane
