‘Village of the Damned’ Remake is Happening
1957 science fiction novel tells the tale of an sleepy little English village in which a strange event results in the local women become pregnant by brood parasitic aliens. These children grow up to have otherworldly powers of the mind, with the ability able to control people and animals, leading the government and locals to try and take down the “Cuckoos”. There has been several adaption of the story, including a 1960’s film called Village of the Damned, which had a sequel called Children of the Damned. Both of these films added a new element to the children’s abilities, which allows them to read minds. John Carpenter made a remake in 1995, swapping Winshire, England, for North Carolina. The film starred Christopher Reeve in his very last role before his accident.
Deadline revealed that Farr is working to turn the novel into an eight-part TV series, using ITV Studios-backed Route 24 for SKY television.
As the COVID-19 event starts to calm down, productions are beginning to pick up, with filming in England resuming for many film and TV productions, such as The Batman, which was given the go-ahead last week. UK government and health bodies signed off on new corona-virus safety rules which means that many studios can re-open their doors.
