    <span style='color:888888'>____[/color]Pendragon Pictures' principals are concerned over a rumour that production of WAR OF THE WORLDS is about to resume on October 8th, 2003.
    [color=888888]____[/color]Director Timothy Hines expresses dismay at the rumour, "It is absolutely not true that War of the Worlds is about to resume. The reality is that we are
    massively reworking the script in the wake of the World Trade Center disaster and we will not be able to go before the cameras for a little over a year."
    [color=888888]____[/color]The Pendragon principals lost a close friend and investor in WAR OF THE WORLDS in the World Trade Center attack.
    [color=888888]____[/color]Timothy Hines goes on, "It has been a very difficult time for everyone. The whole world was touched by the WTC experience. We watched portions of
    our fictional screenplay being played out on September 11th. I knew immediately we couldn't do War of the Worlds as conceived. It was a strange time.
    I found myself weeping on the phone with Michele Jeffers at Foundation Imaging. They were great in that they wrote off some of the effects work we had
    built for War of the Worlds. The fans of War of the Worlds will be very pleased with the direction we are taking, but I won't just slap it out there.
    War of the Worlds deserves care and time and there is no other way I could do it."
    [color=888888]____[/color]Pendragon Producer Susan Goforth adds, "The script has to be rewritten from the ground up. This new version will be a true and accurate adaptation
    of the Wells classic story placed in its original 1898 setting. It's been emotionally difficult for us to see sets and thousands of preparations scrapped.
    But Timothy has made the right choice."


    [img]http://www.dowse.com/movies/wotw1.jpg'>


    [color=888888]____[/color]Foundation Imaging will handle a major portion of the visual effects for WAR OF THE WORLDS. Director Timothy Hines commented, 'Originally, I
    had thought to go entirely in-house. But when we toured facilities, met artists, I knew we were philosophically aligned. Ron (Thornton) is a huge fan
    of WAR OF THE WORLDS, and has a strong background in miniature construction, which is fantastic, as we are favouring miniatures over CG as our
    primary approach to the effects.'
    [color=888888]____[/color]That is not to say Pendragon's Magic Dragon Visual Effects will not be involved. 'We're bringing on people like Jon Sorenson, who contributed to
    many effects films, such as the construction of the Nostromo for Alien,' says Hines.

    [img]http://www.pendragonpictures.com/files/Alcon5.jpg'>

    [color=888888]____[/color]As far as the darkness of Pendragon's script, 'I'm convinced more than ever that we are doing WAR OF THE WORLDS right,' says Hines, candidly.
    "We met with many studio executives and Hollywood agents, and the vast majority have flipped out at how great our script is, though a few have
    expressed concerns as to how frightening our approach is. Talking with one major producer, when I expressed that the fans of WAR OF THE WORLDS
    demand that the story be told true to Wells and must be dark, he responded by telling me, 'These people are not your audience. Kids are the ones
    going to the movies the most and your film will terrify them.' He tried to convince me that my production needed more 'dramedy'. Whereas
    script polishing is inevitable as you go in production, I assure the fans that our movie will be truly terrifying and contain no 'dramedy'.

    i wounder why they put in on hold due to 9/11. it has nothing to do with terrorism. Aliens and Alquida don't really have too much in common.

    It really sucks that they had to dance around everyone's feelings in regards to 911. Seems like a lot of things have been watered down because of that shit. Looks good other than that. The aliens look like some creepy fucks.

    you didn't read carefully enough
    this is a read between the lines thing..

    statements such as:
    ....reworking the entire script form the ground up

    .....We watched portions of
    our fictional screenplay being played out on September 11th. I knew immediately we couldn't do War of the Worlds as conceived.

    ...This new version will be a true and accurate adaptation
    of the Wells classic story placed in its original 1898 setting.


    indicate that the version they had been planning included some stuff that is obviously relevant, or too eerily similar to the WTC attacks..who knows?? art imitating life, that hadn't happened yet..

    plus a main collaborator was killed in the attacks



    ANYWAY..

    that looks awesome..
    good lookin out rage
    i will be anxiously awaiting..


    and one thing i loved:

    the guy isn't pandering to an audience.

    "this will not contain dramedy"

    HELLYEAH

    as always, good looking out Rager...

    This is most certainly interesting to say the least, im surprised I had not heard of it before, the concept art looks great, Im not real familiar with pendragon pictures though....the best part is its based in 1898!

    looks tight.
    I'd probably go see it just because of the no dramedy thing. I hate it when people tone shit down.

    They might not being watering it down. They could be including stuff about 911 in there. Or maybe they don't want their movie to get any publicity out of the 9/11 have it judged on its own merits. who knows. looks ill.

    "This new version will be a true and accurate adaptation

    READ AGAIN.

    "The Pendragon principals lost a close friend and investor in WAR OF THE WORLDS in the World Trade Center attack.
    Timothy Hines goes on, "It has been a very difficult time for everyone. The whole world was touched by the WTC experience. We watched portions of our fictional screenplay being played out on September 11th. I knew immediately we couldn't do War of the Worlds as conceived. It
    was a strange time....The fans of War of the Worlds will be very pleased with the direction we are taking, but I won't just slap it out there.
    War of the Worlds deserves care and time and there is no other way I could do it."

    pretty self explanatory.

    im hyped up that these guys are planning on using miniatures for a majority of
    the ships instead of this space age computer graphics garbage. Call me old fashioned
    but i just don't really care for CG shit.
