Another Philip K. Dick movie, or a TV show, on the way?

First edition hardcover. 

Jesse Walker on X: "A movie or TV version of one of Philip K. Dick's best books, THE THREE STIGMATA OF PALMER ELDRITCH, may be on the way: (Yes, I know: We already have EXISTENZ.)"

Here's the first couple of sentences from the report Jesse links to:

"Joining the likes of Blade Runner, Minority Report and A Scanner Darkly, Philip K Dick’s 1964 novel The Three Stigmata Of Palmer Eldritch could soon become a film or TV series.

"Thanks to an anonymous tip-off, Film Stories did a search of the United States Copyright Office’s records, and discovered a tantalising entry. On 23 March this year, Netflix Entertainment LLC completed a short-form option agreement with the late author’s estate, meaning it now has the rights to adapt The Three Stigmata Of Palmer Eldritch into a television show, film, or some other kind of production."
