HBO has released the first teaser for Fahrenheit 451, the upcoming film adaptation of the Ray Bradbury novel starring Michael B. Jordan, Michael Shannon, Sofia Boutella and Lilly Singh. It was directed by Ramin Bahrani from a script he wrote with Amir Naderi. It debuts in the spring. The film was shot in Toronto. It’s produced by Noruz Films, Brace Cove, David Coatsworth and Outlier Society with Bahrani, Sarah Green, Jordan, Alan Gasmer, and Peter Jaysen executive producing.

Here’s a synopsis: Fahrenheit 451 depicts a future where the media is an opiate, history is rewritten and “firemen” burn books. Jordan portrays Montag, a young fireman who forsakes his world and struggles to regain his humanity as he battles his mentor, fire captain Beatty, played by Shannon. Sofia Boutella (The Mummy, Kingsman: The Secret Service) stars as Clarisse, an informant caught between the competing interests of Montag and Beatty. The cast also includes Lilly Singh (Bad Moms) as Raven, a tabloid reporter who works with the fire department to spread the ministry’s propaganda by broadcasting its book-burning raids to fans.
