In a literal sense, the book is even more absurdly on-the-nose, given our commander-in-chief's notorious disdain for the written word and unhealthy obsession with his Fox and Friends echo chamber.

"We'relectingng to give it all away to [phones]", the director said.

"I really wanted to burn Ferdowsi, it's an Iranian epic poem, I really wanted to burn that", Bahrani said. Bahrani conceptualized this new take on the futuristic society by imagining that "it wouldn't be very hard to start to manipulate and control what is on the Internet if things got more centralized".

"Will we actually get ahead of the dam, or will it just be a flood and up to some other generation to bring back all of Bradbury's heroes?" "He was anxious about reader's digest, he was concerned about quick short soundbites". He thought all that would destroy concepts of thinking, reading and knowledge.

Fahrenheit 451 will air on HBO in the spring of 2018.

But Bahrani wasn't ready to lay all the blame on the current president, adding that we as a culture have become beholden to technology and having information at our fingertips.

They're gone, Bahrani said when asked where are the checks and balances. "We decided we don't want to have any part in that", he warned.

"It is terrifying", he said.

Yes, there isn't much to the actual teaser, but thanks to THR we have some looks at the star-studded main cast of the film in Michael B. Jordan (Creed, Fruitvale Station), Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire, Man of Steel), and Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Mummy). It is being directed by Ramin Bahrani who recently told the Hollywood Reporter that although the film's plot strays from the source material, it remains true to the original theme. It's produced by Noruz Films, Brace Cove, David Coatsworth and Outlier Society with Bahrani, Sarah Green, Jordan, Alan Gasmer, and Peter Jaysen executive producing.

Fahrenheit 451 takes place in a dystopian reality set in a future America where books have been outlawed, and it's the job of "firemen" to burn any books they discover. "If we're going to save White Heat we should have to save Mein Kampf, right?"
