Doubledown Note: Unfortunately there is no mention of Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
Virtual World" and "Metaverse."
Film adaptation of Snow Crash??
The novel was optioned shortly after its publication and subsequent success, although it has never progressed past pre-production. John Raffo and Jeffery Nachmanoff both completed drafts under the supervision of director Marco Brambilla while the project was set up at Touchstone Pictures and Kathleen Kennedy's production company, but due to the large budget required, neither was given a green light.
Also, there is no mention of a few others that I think deserve honorable mentions. These include the movies "The Matrix", "Strange Days", "Cool World" and the book "Vurt" by Jeff Noon.
Are there any other Virtual World science fiction stories, or Virtual Reality stories I missed? Please post those in comments, and I'll add them to this blog post.
