Warners Plans "Remake That Fell to Earth"

by | October 28, 2005 | Comments

Warner Independent Pictures is planning to mount a remake of Nicolas Roeg‘s 1977 cult classic "The Man Who Fell to Earth," itself an adaptation of the Walter Tevis novel from 1963. Screenwriter Oren Moverman has earned the remake writing gig.

Variety says the "story is about an alien who comes to Earth disguised as a businessman to procure water for his parched planet. Along the way, he becomes the head of a powerful international conglomerate and discovers just how greedy mankind is, falling into a metaphysical crisis."

The original version of Tevis’ novel starred David Bowie. No word yet on who’ll be starring in (or directing) the revisit.
