WAR OF THE WORLDS
NEW MINI SERIES FROM CANAL+
I'm not exactly sure why they've chosen this particular moment when BBC is ready to air their version of H.G. Wells' classic WAR OF THE WORLDS with Rafe Spall and Eleanor Tomlinson, but for some reason Canal + and
Fox Networks will shoot their own 8 episode series on it and they have the cast as well: Gabriel Byrne, Elizabeth McGovern, Léa Drucker, Natasha Little, Daisy Edgar Jones, Stéphane Caillard, Adel Bencherif and Guillaume Gouix will star in the version set in contemporary Europe
following the pockets of humanity left on earth after an apocalyptic extra-terrestrial strike. The series will air later this year on Canal + in France and on all Fox cable channels around Europe and Africa. Richard Clarke who directed Versailles will helm half of the season.
