Newell to direct Day of the Triffids remake

British director Mike Newell, best known for Four Weddings and a Funeral and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has signed up for a new big-screen version of John Wyndham's Day of the Triffids.

Based on the sci-fi horror story where alien plants invade Earth, the script is written by Neil Cross (Pacific Rim) and put together by Ghost House Pictures.

The film has been in the works for a number of years, yet there is no production date available but at least Day of the Triffids is one step closer to becoming another remake of a classic story.
