Don Murphy And Michael Preger Bringing DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS Back In 3D

Don Murphy (Transformers) is set to team up with fellow film maker Michael Preger (Village of the Damned) to produce a 3D remake of the 1962 sci fi/horror "The Day of the Triffids" (Invasion of the Triffids).

Preger first acquired the rights to do another film, based on the 1951 John Wyndham novel, way back in 1991, and along with Murphy, the duo have been working on developing it for more than a decade.

Recent advances in 3D movie making convinced them that the time is now to move forward with their plans.

Preger explains, "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,"

Unlike the 1962 film, Preger and Murphy plan to follow the story from the original novel more closely, "This original classic has still to be successfully envisioned on the screen," adds Murphy. "It is a story that strikes at the heart of what it means to be human and does so in an intensely cinematic way."

Though a true version of "Triffids" that follows Wyndham's 'vision' hasn't been produced for the big screen, there have been two very good series produced for television by the BBC, in 1981 and again in 2009.
