With one of its signature series winding down, MTV may have its replacement lined up. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the cable network is developing a series based on H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds.”
The news comes as MTV’s “Teen Wolf” approaches its sixth and final season, due in 2017.
Jeff Davis and Andrew Cochran are set to do the “War of the Worlds” adaptation.
“The project hails from The Firm’s Jeff Kwatinetz and Josh Barry, the latter of whose grandfather, Gene Barry, starred in the first film adaptation — 1953’s Paramount movie directed by Byron Haskin,” THR notes.
