…. to Invade Airwaves in the Near Future.

"H.G. Wells's sci-fi classic War of the Worlds has undergone many adaptations already, but a few more won't hurt. Fox Networks Group is mounting a new War of the Worlds TV series, likely starring Greg Kinnear. The timing on this is a bit odd, since the BBC is about to premiere a War of the Worlds TV series of their own.

Deadline broke the news about a new War of the Worlds TV series, which Greg Kinnear is said to be circling. The series will air on Canal+ in France and on Fox across 50 territories across Europe and Africa. Studiocanal will distribute internationally. The series will be set in the present day, and is described as "a reimagined telling of HG Wells' alien invasion story."…."

I'll hold my breath and wait. The new Lost in Space was pretty good.

Ah, more proof that imagination is truly dead, amongst TV series writers and directors.

How about a good movie set in the actual time period?

Wildman +1

Wouldn't a movie faithful to the book be wonderful? Do we really need yet another remake set in the present day?

I'll wait for the BBC version set in the correct period.

I'm more interested in c. 1900 than the present.
