"Coming out on top of a competitive situation, Paramount has picked up 2084, an original spec script from Mattson Tomlin, the co-writer of The Batman.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura, known for producing the Transformers and G.I. Joe movies for the studio, will produce.

Details are scarce, but the project is described as being a spiritual sister to 1984, the novel by George Orwell that depicted a totalitarian state filled with propaganda and surveillance run by a leader known as Big Brother. A forbidden love was an aspect of the story.

The project has also been described as having tones similar to Christopher Nolanís Inception and the Keanu Reeves classic, The Matrix."
