Sam Raimi's Big Screen Adaptation Of "THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS" Gets Writer

New postby BooMan » Wed Feb 29, 2012 3:50 pm

For those of you waiting to hear more about the classic John Wyndham’s 1951 novel "THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS" and its movie status get a big update today courtesy of Variety.com. Variety is reporting that Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert’s Ghost House Pictures has signed Neil Cross to screen write the novel into the movie that will be coming out titled simply, "TRIFFIDS".

Plot Synopsis: The Day of the Triffids is a post-apocalyptic novel about aggressive plants taking over the world, published in 1951 by the English science fiction author John Wyndham Parkes Lucas Beynon Harris, under the pen-name John Wyndham. Although Wyndham had already published other novels using other pen-name combinations drawn from his lengthy real name, this was the first published under the John Wyndham pen-name. It established him as an important writer, and remains his best known novel. It has been made into one feature film (in 1962), two radio drama series (in 1957 and 1968), and two TV series (in 1981 and 2009).
