The Martian Chronicles Of Narnia Is Coming!

Filed under: Film Flickers

the martian chronicles film in the works

After Battle: Los Angeles, maybe it's not such a bad idea for Hollywood to take us to another planet…

Sources are saying that Paramount has picked up the rights to Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles, which is a classic short story collection from the 1940s about humans attempting to start colonies on Mars.

The film is being is produced by Predators/I, Robot producer John Davis, and the stories will deal with the following:

- Humans attempting to settle Mars and Martians attempting to fight against them

- Human colonization of Mars, followed by a nuclear war that causes most humans to leave the planet and go back to Earth

- Humans becoming the "new Martians"

Previously, The Martian Chronicles was adapted as a mini-series in 1980 by NBC/The BBC.

Paramount hasn't found a writer for the film yet, so hopefully they'll find someone who can do justice to the original short story collection AND the mini-series.

Maybe they should just have James Cameron write this. The subject matter is pret-ty similar to Avatar…or perhaps we should say that Avatar's subject matter is similar to this…

Are U excited for this new adaptation of The Martian Chronicles? Who would U like to see sign on to write and/or direct???
