Netflix has announced that they have acquired the film rights to HELLO AMERICA, the 1981 sci-fi novel by J.G Ballard. Scott Free’s Ridley Scott, Kevin Walsh and Michael Pruss will produce.

The novel takes place a century after America’s financial collapse and abandonment by its people, when a group of pioneers return to the ruins of the “New World” on a voyage of rediscovery. The journey through a ravaged wasteland brings hazards at every turn to the crew, culminating in a showdown with a charismatic leader who plans to unleash his nuclear arsenal against anyone who threatens his power perch.

This marks the second project that Scott Free will produce with Netflix, after War Party, the Andrew Dominik film, starring Tom Hard.
