It’s a fine time to bring some classic visions of dystopia to life. According to Deadline, Alden Ehrenreich has been cast in the series adaptation of Brave New World, based on the famous novel by Aldous Huxley. The story takes place in World State, a chemically controlled and high regulated society where there’s no privacy or history but everyone feels great because they all take a drug called Soma. Ehrenreich plays John the Savage, a man who lives in the Savage Lands outside the book’s primary location, New London, but makes his way in and disrupts the system. The series was originally green-lit at Syfy but has moved to USA Network.
