H.G Wells’ novel could have another adaptation made after it was revealed that a ‘War Of the Worlds’ TV series could potentially be in the works at MTV.
War of the Worlds is a classic ‘end of the world’ novel published in 1897 by H.G Wells where a battle between the martians of mars and humans begins. Since then the novel has had countless adaptations from games and radio to a rock-musical version by Jeff Wayne. More notably you might remember the 2005 feature film adaptation of the novel featuring Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman, directed by arguably the most famous director of all time, Steven Spielberg!
The project hails from The Firm’s Jeff Kwatinetz and Josh Barry, the latter of whose grandfather, Gene Barry, starred in the first film adaptation — 1953’s Paramount movie directed by Byron Haskin.
