AUGH GOD WHY

hey where it's at! yeeeah
So someone decided to waste a lot of money remaking Day of the Triffids.
But Eddie Izzard's in.
But it's DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS.
But it's EDDIE IZZARD.

There's no way I'm dodging this bullet. Eloi, Eloi, lamma sabacthani???
:(
  • Huh.

    Well, if the original Invasion of the Bodysnatchers was all about the Communist Menace, maybe this Day of the Triffids is about teh gay?

    I'll still go see it with you.
    • Maybe Eddie Izzard will be the hero Triffid.
      I'd pay good money for that!
      • That just skidded way sideways by way of original StarTrek and Alien - Eddie Izzard as a really rude face-hugger "flower".
        • ...Hah! I like it.
          Day of the Triffids done as a sendup- in the way that the recent Stepford Wives remake didn't quite manage- would be wondeful.
          • Hey - dinner sometime? And I'm still interested in borrowing Metropolitan if you have it to loan put...
            • gah. loan out.
              • I don't own a copy, though I do remember the conversation that the movie came up in!
                And dinner would be lovely. When's good by you?
                • Movie? Must have been a different conversation; I meant the Walter Jon Williams book.

                  My Wednesday and Thursday evenings are spoken for, but Mondays and Tuesdays are easy (although, your Tuesdays may all be filled with Noc Noc?).
                  • OH!!
                    Transmetropolitan! I'll dig up my paperback of it.
                    Mon and Tues are the two nights a week I tend to be engaged, but I'll make exception. ;)
                    • Well, a weekend brunch would also do nicely, but I suspected that that time might be more precious than weeknights.

                      And, yes, I'd also love to borrow Transmetropolitan, but I didn't know that you were loaning that out! ('Tis a different beast entirely that I'm looking for...)
                      • Weird, why did I remember the name of that book as Transmetropolitan... okay. WJW's Metropolitan, & I'll see if I can hunt up my transmet trade papers, too.
    • Triffids `09


      "Maybe we didn't give it the right type of soil when raising it?"
      "I'm sure it's just a phase; it'll grow out of it."
      "It's probably due to a bad experience with rapeweed."
  • He's been sending Twitter messages from the set, so I've known about this for a while, but come on, enough with the remakes.
  • If they remake "Plan 9" I'm leaving this planet!
