Paul Giamatti


Paul Giamatti is in talks to portray Philip K. Dick in a biopic on the author he is about to produce through his Touchy Feely Films.

Sets to produce a biopic on sci-fi author Philip K. Dick through his newly established Touchy Feely Films, Paul Giamatti is likely to also take a starring role in the project as well. The actor is reported by Variety to be in talks to portray the writer who passed away on March 2, 1982 due to heart failure after he was disconnected from life support following a stroke.

Along with Touchy Feely Films, Anonymous Content will also produce alongside the Philip K. Dick Estate through its Electric Shepherd Productions with Tony Grisoni writing the screenplay. The picture itself will interweave Dick's life with his fiction and incorporate elements of his last unfinished novel, "The Owl in Daylight."

A prolific film star who has been involved in more than 50 features of either small or big screen projects, Giamatti currently can be seen in M. Night Shyamalan's "Lady in the Water" opposite Bryce Dallas Howard. His next movies include "Bubba Nosferatu", "The Nanny Diaries", and "Tender Interface."
