The notion of director Sam Raimi bringing his morbid sensibilities to John Wyndham’s classic novel The Day Of The Triffids sounds almost too wonderful to be true. So much so that, when it was announced back in 2010 that Raimi had purchased the film rights, we quickly filed it under a portion of our brain under the heading ‘will probably never happen’.
After around 18 months of silence, though, it seems that Raimi’s Triffids movie really is going ahead, with writer Neil Cross hired to get its script together. Cross, as you’re probably aware, is a novelist and screenwriter responsible for Luther, Spooks, and a recent adaptation of an Mr James’ story, Whistle And I’ll Come To You.
