Matt Reeves to Adapt Matthew Baker SciFi Short for Netflix

The Netflix logo

Matt Reeves, director of 2008’s Cloverfield and an upcoming Batman stand-alone film, has struck a deal alongside Netflix to direct an adaptation of Matthew Baker’s scifi short story Life Sentence.

Netflix won out during a white hot bidding war against eight other companies for the short, including Amazon Studios, Warner Bros., Universal, and even Apple, who was interested in a possible TV show.

According to Deadline, the story involves “a futuristic program where the memories of criminals are erased, instead of sending them to prison.” One man, who undergoes such a procedure, attempts to “reconcile his past actions and relationships.”

The idea sounds vaguely similar to what happens in the (IMO very underrated) video game Remember Me. In the world of Neo Paris, criminals, as well as so-called Errorists, have their memories wiped and in some cases stored for the duration of their sentences.
