Remember that awesome 1980s song about the guy who "sailed away to China/in a little rowboat to findya" (possibly the greatest slant-rhyme in the history of slant-rhymes), only to find that his girl had to get her laundry cleaned? Yeah, it was a fantastic song. For those of you who, like me, can't remember, it was by a guy named Matthew Wilder. Rather than disappearing off the face of the earth, it turns out that what Wilder has been doing all this time is ... putting together a comedic film about Philip K. Dick. Well of course he has!

According to Saturday's Production Weekly, the film is entitled Panasonic, and will star Bill Pullman as Dick. Panasonic is described as a "comedic journey" into the author's mind, and Wilder is dreaming big. Get this: "The lines between reality and perfection blur ... Paranoid conspiracy theories of the highest order, drug-fueled interdimensional shifts, and 1970s pop-culture combine for the mind-bending adventure of the century." [Emphasis added.] Whoa. Man, I don't care if Chris De Burgh is directing -- I am totally sold on this one.

The movie is due to begin shooting next month.
