The Don DeLillo novel White Noise has a reputation for being "impossible to film."

And rumors from the set of the Netflix adaptation of it in process don't do much to dispel that notion.

The World of Reel blog shares reports that the budget has shot past $140 million — perhaps tied to the comments about product design going crazy and the director "burning through film prints" — and three crew members have died (unrelated to production).

The book blurb for White Noise describes it as a “satire of mass culture and the numbing effects of technology”; the protagonist is a professor of Hitler studies whose life is upended by an industrial accident’s lethal black cloud.
