HBO Sets May Premiere Date for ‘Fahrenheit 451’ Movie

HBO will premiere its original film Fahrenheit 451 on May 19, the network said Friday.

The drama stars Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther) and is based on Ray Bradbury’s classic novel of the same name about a future where the media is an opiate, history is rewritten and “firemen” burn books, said network officials.

The movie also stars Michael Shannon and Sofia Boutella.

Fahrenheit 451 is produced by Noruz Films, Brace Cove and Outlier Society, with Ramin Bahrani, Sarah Green, Jordan, Alan Gasmer, Peter Jaysen and David Coatsworth serving as executive producers.
