Robert Downey Jr. Snags Rights To Episode Of BBC's Black Mirror Series
[b][url=http://watchwarmbodies]Watc h Warm Bodies Online[/url][/b] For as long as technology has been around helping humans to live better lives, there have always been naysayers claiming society will doom itself in succumbing to all things technological. It’s a frequent theme of science fiction, where our innermost desires are extended and engorged with greed, eased by the ability to make a machine do our dirty work. Recently, the BBC’s powerfully audacious anthology series Black Mirror, much like The Twilight Zone before it, has taken viewers to the darker side of future tech, where no one manages to come out the victor. According to Bleeding Cool, Robert Downey Jr. has now snagged the film rights to the Black Mirror episode “The Entire History of You,” though it’s unclear how intensely he'll be involved. With all of his high-profile acting roles in the past few years, Downey hasn’t really gotten himself into the producer role that a lot of his fellow thespians split their time and talents on.

Considering the subject matter, Clooney would have probably bogged the plot down with some kind of socio-political angle, instead of the fractured love story it tells. The episode, written by Jesse Armstrong of the BBC’s P.O.V. comedy Peep Show, takes place in a future where humans have tiny implants that record the person’s entire life, making all memories and events available for playback at any time. Toby Kebbell plays a lawyer who attends a dinner party with his wife (Jodie Whittaker), and finds she may have had a past history with another man (Tom Cullen), and the chip implant plays a big part in unraveling past events.

If you hear Quentin Tarantino talking about a future project he might want to make, you might be better served just shutting your ears and walking away. The director is famous for constantly bringing up movies he will never make, from the Vega Brothers films that would unite Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs to a third Kill Bill film that he's at least given up on. But following the release and massive success of Django Unchained, Tarantino has talked several times about making yet another revisionist history film-- and he's kept up the conversation in yet another interview.

Cross your fingers if you like for the conclusion of his revisionist history trilogy, but we'll treat it
