Strap On Your Mind Control Caps — The Tripods Are Coming

John Christopher's amazing Tripods book series is getting its big-screen debut, thanks to director Alex Proyas. So teens, ready yourself for the rebellion of your lifetimes, against evil alien overlords.

Knowing director Alex Proyas, told Shock Til You Drop that he's involved with two new projects. One being a retelling of Dracula which we're semi-stoked about, but the other, way more exciting, development is Tripods.

"I'm working on a bunch of different things and the two projects I'm excited about are an adaptation of John Christopher's The Tripod stories that I've co-written with Stuart Hazeldine, who is one of our writers on 'Knowing', and the Dracula project," the Australian filmmaker told Shock Til you Drop. "Both are very exciting projects but at this stage, we're still in the budgeting process for both, so I can't really tell you much more than that."

Hooray, who doesn't love a movie about an already dominated and docile human race that is being controlled by mind caps? Even though there was a Tripods series on the BBC the first book, at least, deserves its own special movie.
