The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Charlize Theron and Alfonso Cuarón will team up to produce a new feature film for Amazon.

Dick (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, The Man in the High Castle) and the relationship with his twin sister, Jane, who died six weeks after birth.

“A moving, suspenseful and darkly humorous story about a woman’s unique relationship with her brilliant, but troubled twin, who also happens to be the celebrated novelist Philip K. Dick. While attempting to rescue her brother from predicaments both real and imagined, Jane plunges deeper and deeper into a fascinating world of his creation.”

The companies producing are Electric Shepherd Productions, Denver and Delilah Productions, and Esperanto Filmoj. Lila Rawlings will executive produce.
