Ryder, Downey, Harrelson in Scanner Lineup

Daily Variety reports that Keanu Reeves will be joined by Winona Ryder, Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson and Rory Cochran in director Richard Linklater’s animated adaptation of the Philip K. Dick novel A Scanner Darkly.

Like Linklater’s award-winning feature Waking Life, Scanner will be shot live-action and turned into animation in post through digital rotoscoping. Waking Life animation director Bob Sabiston will again oversee the process.

George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh are producing the film through their Section 8 shingle, along with Jonah Smith and Palmer West of Thousand Words and Tommy Pallotta and Anne Walker McBay.
