War Of The Worlds, done right
Ian Edginton and D'Israeli, the geniuses behind Scarlet Traces (which takes place in an alternate history, shortly after the events of H.G. Wells War of the Worlds) have completed the circuit now with an adaptation of War of the Worlds itself. The pair are also at work on a sequel to their earlier effort, entitled Scarlet Traces: The Great Game, which I suppose is a sequel to a sequel to Wells' story... or something like that. All of which is a tonic, ready at hand, in the event that the forthcoming Spielberg flick is a disappointing as it threatens to be.
