"Vendetta" Team Took Over Kidman's "Invasion"?

by | April 5, 2007 | Comments

Seems like we’ve been hearing about upcoming sci-fi flick "The Invasion" for a pretty long time now. You know the one: It’s the fourth adaptation of Jack Finney‘s "The Body Snatchers." Directed by "Downfall" helmer Oliver Hirschbiegel, starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig. Remember that one?

Well, it seems that not only did Mr. Hirschbiegel have some real trouble getting acclimated to the Hollywood work, but also that the "V for Vendetta" squad (director James McTeigue and writer/producers Andy & Larry Wachowski) came in for re-shoots — and ended up remaking almost the entire flick.

Ms. Kidman suffered a minor injury during those re-shoots, but according to one report, McTeigue and the Wachowskis pretty much commandeered the whole project, which could make for some interesting battles with the directors’ and writers’ guilds, should the filmmakers opt to go in that direction.

Either way, another new rendition of Finney’s classic tale is always something worth talking about. (Earlier versions: "Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" (1978), and plain old "Body Snatchers" (1993).) Whether or not the backstage drama will damage the final product remains to be seen. "The Invasion" is scheduled to open on August 17th.
