The Control Project is partnering with Archer Sierra (Dark City Media Group) for a trilogy of movies based off of William Control's trans-media body of work, which includes several albums and three books. The partnership's first full length film, Revelator: The Neuromancer, is now officially in development.

Jacob Johnston adapted the book for the screen. He is also directing the resulting film, which will be his debut. Production begins later this year in Montreal, Canada.

"In a world of hyper connectivity and a news feed that disappears faster than you can refresh a browser, I've decided that taking everything into my own hands and being as creative as I want will allow me to accomplish things I never thought possible." Control says. "Bringing Revelator to the big screen is my next big adventure. It's not just for my fans, it's for the world." 

"Revelator: The Neuromancer will spur audiences with an interesting blend of genre bending that takes elements of a strong character drama and combines them with the edge-of-your-seat set pieces of a thriller, with plenty of surprises in between." Sierra says. "The opportunity to partner with a talented and revolutionary artist such as William is a privilege. I am very proud to be part of this project."
