Axis Powers Win World War II in Syfy Adaptation of "The Man in the High Castle"

"Bladerunner" director Ridley Scott produces story of America under German and Japanese influence

The work of sci-fi author Philip K. Dick, whose novels and short stories inspired Bladerunner and Total Recall among others, is set to come to life again in an adaptation of 1962's alternate history classic The Man in the High Castle. Syfy is planning a miniseries based of the story of America under German and Japanese control following the loss of World War II with Bladerunner director Ridley Scott producing.

"The Man in The High Castle is one of Dick's most imaginative and captivating works and certainly one of my favorites," dezcribed Scott.

 

Frank Spotnitz (an X-Files executive producer/writer and the creator of Cinemax spy saga Hunted) will serve as excutive producer and write the first two hours.

 

If you're a reader of Japanese sci-fi prose, you might note that Viz's Haikasoru label is a reference to The Man in the High Castle.
