Tripod adapter and screenwriter Stuart Hazeldine talked about the current film process for Alex Proyas's adaptation of John Christopher's hostile alien takeover book series Tripods. And they're looking for the big money, to afford bigger explosions.
In an interview with Digital Spy, Hazeldine explains the movie's current progress, and it sounds like it's still in the development stages, but actually moving forward. Plus I like where their mind is comparing it to District 9 budget-wise — since that film proved you don't need $200 million today in order to make a film about aliens.
