...Via Deadline, David Farr (The Night Manager, Hanna) is developing an 8-part series adaptation of John Wyndham’s sci-fi novel The Midwich Cuckoos for Sky! Don't recognize that title? It's the same book that both the 1960 Village of the Damned and John Carpenter's 1995 film of the same name were adapted from!
In The Midwich Cuckoos:
"Wyndham’s 1957 story centers on the sleepy English village of Midwich, where a strange sequence of events culminates in the community’s women falling pregnant with alien children with glowing eyes and otherworldly powers."
At this time, we don't have any further word on this new take on Village of the Damned, but we can't wait to see what Farr comes up with, as we've always considered Carpenter's film to be a bit underrated, and this is such a classic story of terror.
