One of our favorite older flicks around these parts is without question the ultra-creepy Day of the Triffids. With Sam Raimi as one of the driving forces behind the remake, it’s impossible to not be excited. Read on for an update on the latest spooker from Ghost House.

According to Variety, Ghost House Pictures has tappped Neil Cross (“Luther”) to write The Day of the Triffids, based on the sci-fi horror novel written by John Wyndam and the 1962 film. The remake will be produced by Ghost House Pictures, The Mark Gordon Company, and Preger Entertainment, LLC.

Mark Gordon, Michael Preger, and Don Murphy are partnering with Ghost House principals Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert to produce. Ghost House principals Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake will exec produce alongside Susan Montford. J.R. Young and Audrey Chon will oversee the project for Ghost House. Drew Simon will supervise the project for The Mark Gordon Company.

Cross created and wrote “Luther,” which will air its third season on BBC. He was recently named one of Variety’s 10 Screenwriters to Watch. Look for more on this one as soon as it comes.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Christ, we just had a ‘Triffids’ remake at the end of 2009! And a few years before that, we had another “remake” in ’28 Days Later’, not to mention the decades of frigging never-ending zombie films that are all essentially ‘Day of the Triffids’ with lumbering flora replaced with lumbering corpses. Then we’ve got ‘The Walking Dead’, which is nothing more than ‘Triffids’ as an ongoing TV series…

    John Wyndham’s got a lot to answer for.
