Sam Raimi to Remake "The Day of the Triffids" Sci-Fi Film

Posted: October 21st, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Sam Raimi to Remake "The Day of the Triffids" Sci-Fi FilmSubmit Comment
Deadline is reporting that Mandate Pictures has won the action for rights to remake "The Day of the Triffids," which will be produced by Sam Raimi's Ghost House production company. And Raimi wants to direct it.

Plot: When a shower of meteorites lights up the sky, it creates such a gorgeous sight that most earthlings can't help but look. So 99% of the population goes blind as a result, but it gets worse. The meteorites unleash Triffids, plants capable of moving around so they can better attack the blind.

The movie is based on a sci-fi novel by John Wyndham, which was part of Mandate's deal. A film was already made based on the book in 1962, which didn't have plants. Instead, space aliens were unleashed.

This plot sounds stupid but if anyone can make a scary/sci fi movie work, it's Raimi

This was already done in the 70's/80's by the BBC as a tv series and it was very good, if they stick with the story then I'm ok with it.

dave -

just going to say the same thing.

Loved that BBC show (even with the cheap DR Who type effects), This could be a good movie.

You all need to look for the 2009 bbc remake, not bad even for the bbc!
The film, ďan effects-laden CGI extravaganza about a world threatened by carnivorous, man-eating plants Ė boasts a star-studded cast that includes Dougray Scott (Desperate Housewives), Joely Richardson (Nip/Tuck), Eddie Izzard (Valkyrie; Oceanís Thirteen), Brian Cox (The Bourne Supremacy), Vanessa Redgrave (Atonement; Evening), Jason Priestley (My Name Is Earl; Medium), Shane Taylor (Band Of Brothers) and Ewen Bremner(Hallam Foe).Ē With traditional global fuel sources dwindling, mankindís search for an alternative has led to the cultivation and harvesting of the Triffid, a relatively newly discovered plant rich in oil extracts. Capable of seemingly intelligent behaviour and able to move around on their leg-like roots, then it all goes tits up!!

Raimi is lining up project after project. When do we get to see Evil Dead 4: The Revenge of Ash?

He's going to waste time f*cking doing this schlock, but isn't going to commit to an Evil Dead IV aka Ash's Armagheddon and Zombie Sluts ????

f*ck Sam Raimi with Stan 'WhoreBag' Lee's limpid, leper-inflicted Jewish circ*msized c*ck.
