Attack the Block’s Joe Cornish is to write and direct an adaptation of Neal Stephenson’s 1992 novel Snow Crash for Paramount Pictures.

According to Deadline, Kathleen Kennedy and Kennedy/Marshall will be producing the movie, which centres around Hiro Protagonist, a computer hacker/samurai swordsman/pizza delivery driver, who investigates and tries to stop the takeover of postmodern civilization. Snow Crash is the name of a new drug which is both a computer virus and a mind-altering virus in a virtual reality world.

Stephenson’s third book featured in Time magazine’s Top 100 best English-language novels since 1923 and was nominated for both the British Science Fiction Award and the Arthur C. Clarke Award.
