Concept Art From the Never-Made Neuromancer Movie

Neuromancer Vincenzo Natali

Film director and storyboard/concept artist Vincenzo Natali has been on Twitter (@vincenzo_natali) about a week and a half and he’s already proven himself a must-follow for fans of sci-fi/fantasy/cool TV and movies. He’s opened his vaults of sketches, storyboards, concept art and scripts, for projects that were made and projects that weren’t. One of the most interesting is his work on the never-made adaptation of William Gibson’s seminal cyberpunk novel Neuromancer. These were most likely made between 2010, when Natali joined the project, and 2012, when this preliminary poster came out.

Looks like it could have been a good film. The caption info is adapted from the text of Natali’s tweets:
