3-D TRIFFIDS Set For Production?

By on 24 September, 2010

I don’t need to preach about how 3-D movies seem to be more popular than ever these days…, but could a new 3-D version of John Wyndham‘s ‘The Day Of The Triffids‘ work just as well? 

Transformers‘ producer Don Murphy (pictured above) is apparently teaming up with Michael Preger to make this a reality – according to Variety.

Speaking about the ambitious project to bring yet another adaptation of the iconic sci-fi novel to the big screen, Murphy says:

“This original classic has still to be successfully envisioned on the screen.

“It is a story that strikes at the heart of what it means to be human — and does so in an intensely cinematic way.” 

For those who have not yet read Wyndham‘s classic novel (which first published in 1951), the story tells how mankind suffers a global crisis due to the presence of plants capable of aggressive behavior, leading to an unprecedented cosmic event causing global blindness. 

Preger Entertainment first acquired the movie rights to the 1951 novel back in 1991, and Murphy and Preger have been exploring a project based on the Wyndham book for well over a decade. With recent breakthroughs in 3-D, the pair were convinced that the time had arrived to move forward with the project.


Preger acknowledges that several screen adaptations of Wyndham‘s novel have been produced and that they were limited by film technologies of the past to convey the sense of horror.

He says:

“We are confident that with the new technological advances in 3D production, we have the tools with which to create Wyndham’s iconic vision of Armageddon.”

Preger was also behind the 2009 BBC1 miniseries ‘Day of the Triffids‘.
