War of the Wells

Looks like the planned Speilberg/Cruise remake of War of the Worlds was upstaged by the announcement of another remake that is just about to wrap production. Maybe the two can option one of Pel Toro‘s books?

  1. So I think we can safely say that the “industry experts” who were predicting this puppy to make over a billion (that’s with a “B”) dollars because of the “star pwoer” of Cruise and Spielberg….were wrong?

    If the Victorian era WotW gets out ahead of Spielberg, which looks likely, Spielberg is going to have a lot of work to do one better.

    Maybe he should do another Indiana Jones movie with Cruise as Indy instead. They could always fight Martians…Nazi Martians! And time travel! Let’s not forget time travel (whoops, wrong franchise).

  2. Time travelling Nazi martians! Now that’s a winner!

  3. Listen thats just plain goofy – Time travelling Nazi martians. Everybody knows what really sells is Time-travelling UNDEAD Nazi Martians. Sheesh some folks – you got to keep your finger on the pulse of the youth…
