The Tripods (???)

Coming 'soon' might be a bit optimistic. The movie to the also 'Tripods' called BBC TV series (based on the books by Samuel Youd) is planned for 2009. So not too many information known right now, but since I loved (and feared) the series as kid and still today very much I'd like to start a thread on it already anyway.

Post any information, hopes, speculation about the Tripods Movie here.

Re: The Tripods

This is great news! I loved the books and the BBC series. A movie version could be spectacular...with the proper budget and special effects.
I see on IMDb that Gregor Jordan is set to direct. The only movie of his that I have seen is 'Ned Kelly'. I wonder who they'll get to play Will, Beanpole and Henry?

Re: The Tripods

Woohoo! Fans of the Tripods! I re-read the series probably every couple years and love it to this day. I had heard about this film project for a while and I hope it will happen as it is 2009 and I have heard nothing about it...

I bought some of the BBC series off of EBay on VHS when I was in high school and wasn't a fan...books were much better.

Man I hope this happens!

EDIT: Upon doing an internet search, looks like we might see this in 2012 with Touchstone making it.
