Talking to Variety, Ehrenreich said: “You have a sense of the world from the start, and it conveys a level of intelligence to it that I think adds something for me.
“’Brave New World’ is different from the average, run of the mill dystopia or utopia series because you know that there’s a level of philosophical depth and emotional depth to it from the book.
“I had an experience, I guess seven years now, doing a movie called ‘Beautiful Creatures’ that was based on a book, and it was the first time I’d done this, and I felt the only way to really serve it and do it is to treat the script like the script.
“You know what the basic feeling of the source material is and you make sure the [adaptation] is capturing its essence, but then you go off of the story you have to tell.”
Brave New World starts on Friday, October 2, at 9pm on Sky One.
