'Fahrenheit 451' teaser and first look images get intense makeover

Asked where the checks and balances went, the filmmaker said, "We've handed them over to Google, Facebook, the government, we've decided we don't want any of that". "I think we've been going in that direction for a long time, it's just now kind of being revealed to us more clearly". "Because I don't want to excuse the 30, 40 years prior that that", Bahrani insisted.

Bradbury's novel is a classic work of science fiction.

"We are electing this thing in my pocket", Bahrani said, pulling out his smartphone. "We are electing to give it all away to this".

"Between technological advancements and politics, I think Bradbury's biggest concern is now".

"I have always loved Ray Bradbury's prophetic novel Fahrenheit 451", writer-director Ramin Bahrani said in a press release from HBO.

The teaser highlights the most vivid part of the novel, showing a burning copy of Crime and Punishment that's dropped onto a pile of other controversial books, which is set on fire by a firefighter yielding a flamethrower. Bahrani conceptualized this new take on the futuristic society by imagining that "it wouldn't be very hard to start to manipulate and control what is on the Internet if things got more centralized". "He was anxious about reader's digest, he was concerned about quick short soundbites". We can get into tweets, wiki entries, which are basically even shorter entries of readers' digests.

"We are not born equal, we must be made equal by the fire, and then we can be happy", Beatty says in one scene.

But Bahrani wasn't ready to lay all the blame on the current president, adding that we as a culture have become beholden to technology and having information at our fingertips.

"It is terrifying", he said. The cast also includes Sofia Boutella and Lilly Singh.

Bahrani, who co-wrote the telepic alongside Amir Naderi and reteams with Shannon after he starred in their feature 99 Homes, confessed that he told his agent at one point that he should call HBO and refund the network's money because he felt that he couldn't finish the script. Jordan, Alan Gasmer, and Peter Jaysen were also involved as executive producers on the sci-fi thriller.
