Alex Proyas to adapt Heinlein’s “The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag”

Tuesday 10th April 2012 by Matt Blackwood

Director Alex Proyas, known for his visually stunning work on The Crow and Dark City, has announced plans to direct a film adaptation of Robert A. Heinlein’s The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag.

The story begins when Hoag realizes he has no idea what he does at work all day. He hires detectives to follow him but quickly discovers that his amnesia may not be the most disturbing thing about his job…

Proyas is currently working on a screenplay based on the 1942 novella, reportedly a childhood favorite. Production company Red Granite will finance the film, which will likely be shot this fall in Australia.
