Back in 2006, hyper-stylistic music video director Joseph Kahn was attached to a film adaptation of William Gibson's novel Neuromancer. It's unclear precisely why it fell apart, but it did—and one of the few remaining artifacts of its existence is this batch of storyboards.

Kahn is prepping a horror flick called Detention that's slated to hit screens next spring, but he dropped this nugget into his Twitter feed:

The Fraga he's talking about is comic-book artist Dan Fraga, who put up a host of storyboards from an action scene on his blog. Just another look at a sci-fi movie that almost happened, but didn't.
