Efforts to bring to the screen the novel of Huxley back in 2009, when it was reported that Ridley Scott would direct a film adaptation with Leonardo DiCaprio. In 2015, she was involved with the Amblin TV, Steven Spielberg, with a adaptation planned for Syfy.

Published in 1932, Huxley's brave new world tells the tale of a dystopia futuristic, where humans genetically perfect sit on top of a rigid social hierarchy based on intelligence. The order is challenged when a stranger member of a group of “wild” non-genetically enhanced is introduced in the company and becomes a celebrity. The book is now considered one of the classics of the literature of the 20th century, along with 1984 by George Orwell and Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, just to name a few. The story has influenced many movies over the years, most notably Blade Runner and even the animated film WALL-E.

As reported by Deadline, The new world will arrive on the small screen in the United States, given that the network has given an order for the series of Universal Content Productions and Amblin. The arrangement was signed by David Wiener (Homecoming), along with Grant Morrison and Brian Taylor (Happy!). Even though the work stands as one of the most famous science fiction novels of all time, and is still a staple in the readings of the high schools, there has never been a film adaptation of the book. Were produced two adaptations of TV's, one in 1980 and another in 1998. The book was adapted as a play for radio in 1955, with Huxley himself, who serves as a narrator, and music by legendary film composer Bernard Herrmann.

Only recently, Netflix has released the series, Altered Carbon, whose plot is very reminiscent of the one created by Huxley in 1932. In fact, the entire genre of fiction dystopian, in literature and film, owes a huge debt to Huxley for his fundamental work.
