9780002246187: Johnny Mnemonic: Script

Johnny is a courier. He carries data, uploaded into his brain through a jack implanted in his skull. And so Johnny's troubles begin. The data is stolen, and to get it back the owners have hired the Yakuza who intend to get hold of Johnny. But all they really need is his cryogenically frozen head.

From the Back Cover:

Johnny is a courier. He carries other people's memories, millions of them, downloaded into his brain… Working out of Beijing, he is hired to carry a package to the States. The hundreds of gigabytes stashed in his head are far beyond his capacity, but as long as he gets downloaded quickly they won't do him any permanent harm…

But headaches are the least of Johnny's problems. The Americans aren't the only ones who want the data. The Yakuza are after Johnny too. Not all of him, though. All they need is his cryogenically frozen head…

In 'JOHNNY MNEMONIC' the science-fiction guru of our age brings his acid-drenched tale of the near future to the screen for the first time. Containing William Gibson's original short story, his full script and exclusive stills from the film, this classic of the cyberpunk era expresses the unique vision of the author who was the first to see his way into tomorrow…

"The reactor-core stream of all tomorrow's parties breathing down your neck today. This man has tapped straight into our collective cultural mainline and shows no signs of stopping"
SPIN

"He has revitalized science fiction as no other single force has in nearly a generation"
ROLLING STONE

"Gibson may have taken his raw data from unsuspecting hackers, but… with his visions of computer cowboys on a new technological frontier, he gave them back an identity and a set of ennobling myths"
THE FACE

"The Raymond Chandler of SF"
THE OBSERVER
