Greg Kinnear In Talks To Star In Canal+ & Fox Networks Group’s ‘War Of The Worlds’ Remake
Exclusive: Greg Kinnear is in talks to star in Fox Networks Group’s European remake of War of the Worlds.

I hear that the actor, who was most recently in the sixth season of Netflix’s House of Cards, has been circling the script, which was written by MisfitsHoward Overman, but that a deal has not yet been struck.

Kinnear would be a big get for the ambitious project, which is Fox Networks Group Europe and Africa’s second original commission following Deep State, and is co-produced by France’s Canal+. It is produced by Urban Myth Films, Overman’s Studiocanal-backed indie that he runs with Johnny Caps and Julian Murphy.

It is currently in pre-production and sources close to production have told Deadline that it is set to start full production next year.

Set in the present day, it will be a reimagined telling of Hg Wells’ alien invasion story.
