A Scanner Darkly will employ the same technology Linklater used in Waking Life, It will be shot live-action, then animated.
Book was influenced by the drug experiences of Dick, the deceased author whose mind-bending sci-fi tales have been turned into Blade Runner, Total Recall and Minority Report, among other films. Linklater did the most recent draft of the script.
