Derjyn it is really hard to understand your motivation of commenting. I bought the material and it *highly* satisfied my needs. Also the seller is really helpful, I was'nt able to run it in 4.18 he fixed it in minutes. If you really want make something really productive create your material and than release an article here.

Simon Stålenhags Goes to Hollywood

Famous sci-fi artist from Sweden is planning to do some big major project on the East Coast.

This some amazing news for the fans of Simon Stålenhags. Looks like an American film company Russo Brothers Studio has purchased the rights to make a movie adaptation of his book The Electric State. Writing the script will be Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, the screenwriters who worked on last two Captain America films and the two sequels to The Avengers. They promise not to turn it into a superhero flick.

Like most of Simon’s works, The Passage is an art book with some interesting story. It’s about a quest of a teenager, who travels across the dystopian United States together with a little yellow robot. He sees different crazy stuff, witnesses the signs of fights long gone, and sees a high-tech consumer society in decline. As they approach the coast, the world falls together at a faster rate, as if the hollow core of civilization eventually collapsed beyond the horizon. 

The Electric State took over 3 million Swedish kroner on Kickstarter last year.
