Tom Hiddleston will be starring in an adaptation of J. G. Ballard's 1975 novel High Rise. The news first broke when director Ben Wheatley tweeted out a poster for the project, with more details then coming out of the Berlin International Film Festival. High Rise tells the story of a fancy new all-encompassing apartment complex, which, over time, descends into chaos, with the lower, middle, and upper classes (who live on the lower, middle, and upper floors, respectively) basically waging a war against each other. And we thought finding a good two-bedroom in (insert cool area in the city nearest you) was hard.
