The 'Man' falls to the right hands so we do not need to worry about it. Warner Independent Pictures and Cherry Road Films have optioned the rights to Walter Tevis' 1963 novel "The Man Who Fell to Earth," as well as the remake rights to Nicolas Roeg's 1977 British film starring David Bowie, of the same name.
The two studios then plan to make the remake of the movie, tentatively titled "The Man Who Fell to Earth" with screenwriter Oren Moverman set to adapt. The story is about an alien who comes to Earth disguised as a businessman to procure water for his parched planet. Along the way, he becomes the head of a powerful international conglomerate and discovers just how greedy mankind is, falling into a metaphysical crisis.
