The Day Of The Triffids BBC Remake News
[Arggh run, killer plants!]
I have questioned the need to remake/readapt The Day Of The Triffids, however the BBC press release has done it's job and I'm now interested, a lot.
Dougray Scott, Joely Richardson, Brian Cox, Vanessa Redgrave,Eddie Izzard and Jason Priestley star in The Day Of The Triffids, onBBC One this Christmas, written by Patrick Harbinson (ER, Law & Order).
Go and look at the stills: people with cuts on their heads, it's the apocalypse! The visuals look pretty stylish and faithful to the images that the book produced in my head. Which is a good thing.
No broadcast date on that page yet but I'm sure I heard Eddie Izzard say it was Christmas time. Mr. Izzard also seemed pretty impressed with the production.
Andy says that the Radio Times has a broadcast date of 9.00pm on Monday 28th December.
