I reviewed William Gibson’s The Peripheral back in 2014. Now Amazon Prime is bringing it to our screens. Watching the trailer I am impressed with the visuals, but it seems the story has been significantly altered.
Gibson’s works have been adapted a few times but none of them very successfully. I’m very interested to see out this effort comes out but I’m not holding out for much. What it does make me hopeful for is that Gibson will complete the trilogy soon. That is something I’ll be excited to see.
‘The Peripheral’, starring Chloë Grace Moretz, debuts 21 October on Amazon Prime.
