I typically don't link rumor's until it's a go on the set, but this just hits home with me. I have a special place in my heart for certain movies and the cheesy Day Of the Triffids is one of them (The movie, I've not scene the mini-series). There are certain scenes that are very creepy and for the time it was made, not a bad movie. I could see this being remade with some very up to date look and feel. Still maybe cheese, but then again, maybe the best monster movie evah.

The book was decent. Much like War of The Worlds

Ghost House Pictures Taps Writer For 'Triffids' Revamp

Ghost House Pictures has tappped Neil Cross ("Luther") to write The Day of the Triffids, based on the sci-fi horror novel written by John Wyndam and the 1962 film, reports Variety. Still no word on if Sam Raimi will direct.

"A shower of meteorites produces a glow that blinds anyone that looks at it. As it was such a beautiful sight, most people were watching, and as a consequence, 99% of the population go blind. In the original novel, this chaos results in the escape of some Triffids: experimental plants that are capable of moving themselves around and attacking people. In the 1962 film, however, the Triffids are not experimental plants. Instead they are space aliens whose spores have arrived in an earlier meteor shower."

Cross currently has several feature scripts being produced by Guillermo Del Toro including the horror film Mama, staring Jessica Chastain, which is in post-production.

The film will be produced by Ghost House Pictures, The Mark Gordon Company, and Preger Entertainment, LLC.

While this has nothing to do with this news, I ran across this art from artist/Illustrator Paul Gerrard. Now imagine this thing alive and attacking you.
