Planned adaptation

In 2009, Ridley Scott and Leonardo DiCaprio announced that they would collaborate on a new adaptation of the book.[47] However, as of 2013, the project has been on hold. In an interview with Collider (website), Scott said, I don’t know what to do with Brave New World. It’s tough. I think Brave New World in a funny kind of way was good in nineteen thirty-eight, because it had a very interesting revolutionary idea. Don’t forget it came shortly before or after George Orwell, roughly the same time. When you re-analyze it, maybe it should stay as a book. I don’t know. We tried to get it….[48] In the meantime Scott has been involved with other projects.[49]


In May 2015, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment will bring Brave New World to the SyFy TV channel as a scripted series, written (adapted) by Les Bohem.[50] The adaptation was eventually written by David Wiener, with Grant Morrison and Brian Taylor and a series ordered to air on USA Network in February 2019.[51]
