3D Triffids Are Comin’ at Ya!


A more faithful adaptation of Wyndham’s novel

John Wyndham’s 1951 novel “The Day of the Triffids” is going to get another crack at the big screen.

Don Murphy (Transformers, Splice) and Michael Preger are spearheading a new effort to faithfully adapt the tale, but this time in 3D. This is Preger’s second go at the material. He produced the 2009 BBC Triffids series starring Dougray Scott.

Preger also produced another Wyndham story, John Carpenter’s 1995 Village of the Damned.

Triffids follows the rise of a devastating and aggressive plant species that travels on three legs and wields a poisonous stinger.
