by | April 11, 2005 | Comments

Variety reports that filmmaker Stephen Sommers ("The Mummy," "Van Helsing") has been signed by Paramount to write and direct a remake of "When Worlds Collide." The 1951 science-fiction film was directed by Rudolph Maté and based upon the novel by Edwin Balmer and Philip Wylie, and details what happens when "scientists discover that another planet is veering dangerously close to Earth, and they make plans for a small group of humans to leave the planet before the inevitable deadly collision."Expect Paramount to treat "When Worlds Collide" a whole lot like their upcoming "War of the Worlds" remake: a big, splashy, summertime tent-pole release.
