Cult New Zealand TV Series The Tribe is being developed as a film by creator Raymond Thompson, with Peter Jackson's Weta Workshop taking on the project's special effects if the film is greenlit.

With the TV series already having a fanatical following in the UK, the film will introduce The Tribe to Us audiences under the name "Tribes". It is set in a post-apocalyptic works in which children and teenagers must fend for themselves and build their own society after a virus has wiped out all the adults.

"I always wanted to do a move version and work with a bigger canvas" to explore the world set up in the TV show, Thompson told Variety. Cloud 9 produced nearly 300 half-hour episodes of "The Tribe" from 1999 to 2003. Channel 5 continued the show for a season in 2005 with a spinoff "The New Tomorrow" which featured a younger set of characters.
