The talented Brit writer/director Joe Cornish certainly turned heads last year with his feature directorial debut 'Attack The Block' and now Deadline are reporting that Paramount Pictures have hired the Brit to write and direct sci-fi flick 'Snow Crash', based on the novel by Neal Stephenson. First published back in 1992 the book had been picked up by Paramount and was being developed into a feature until it eventually fell through and was left shelved. However, just recently the studio have re-aquired the development rights and signed up Cornish to take it on. Cornish also co-wrote the script for 'The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn' along with fellow Brits Steven Moffat ('Doctor Who') and Edgar Wright ('Shaun of the Dead').

"The book is set in the near future, when the U.S. exists as a patchwork of corporate-franchise city-states, and private enterprise and the mafia control everything. The plot involves a computer virus that is manifested as a drug called Snow Crash that is transmitted visually from computer screens to unsuspecting users, frying their brains. Hiro Protagonist – that’s the character’s name – a computer hacker/samurai swordsman/pizza delivery driver who investigates and tries to stop the takeover of postmodern civilization."
