Anonymous Content and Electric Shepherd Productions are signing a first look deal with Philip K. Dick's estate to develop film and television adaptations of the author's works, which include over 120 short stories and 45 novels. Some of Dick's works have already gotten the big screen treatment: "Blade Runner" ("Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?"), "Total Recall," "Minority Report," "The Adjustment Bureau" and "A Scanner Darkly."

Some other notable novels include "The Man in the High Castle" and "Ubik," which Electric Shepherd and Anonymous Content are currently adapting with Michel Gondry ("Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind").

“Our father’s library and legacy are deeply important to us and we will strive to bring the highest level of integrity to each project we produce under this new arrangement with Anonymous Content,” states Isa Dick Hackett.
