According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dark City director Alex Proyas plans on bringing Heinlein's 1942 novella, The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag to the big screen. I like Heinlein. He's not one of my favorite scifi authors by a long way but this particularly strange tale of his sounds almost like Dark City meets Philip K Dick so I'm intrigued.The offbeat tale centers on a man who becomes increasingly disturbed when he realizes he cannot account for his activities during the day or even what he does for a living. He divulges his problem to the husband-and-wife partners of a private detective agency, and their investigation leads to a series of revelations they could never have fathomed. Producers Mike Medavoy, Arnie Messer, and Brad Fischer describe the flick as "a complex psychological thriller with plenty of action, and a love interest." Just don't expect the mouthful of a title to stick.
