Transformers, Natural Born Killers and Splice producer Don Murphy is approaching the apocalypse, teaming with Michael Preger (Village of the Damned) on a feature version of John Wyndham’s iconic sci-fi novel The Day of the Triffids. In Triffids, first published in 1951, mankind suffers a global crisis due to the presence of plants capable of aggressive behavior, leading to an unprecedented cosmic event causing global blindness. “This original classic has still to be successfully envisioned on the screen,” said 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.” It will be shot using new 3-D technology.
