War Of The Worlds: GOLIATH

Posted by on July 25th,2009

Coming next year from the producers of “Heavy Metal” magazine and films, comes this sequel to H.G. Wells’ “War Of The Worlds”, a brief synopsis may be read below:

“Synopsis by Joe Pearson; “It’s an R rated, retro-history, steam punk epic set in [the year] 1914, fourteen years after the first failed Martian invasion. Mankind has rebuilt her cities and military adapting a lot of the abandoned Martian technology. They’ve created an international defense force, A.R.E.S., based on the lower end of Manhattan and under the command of Theaodore Roosevelt. They’ve built a formidable force centered around giant, steam powered battle tripods.  Think of “Band of Brothers” meets “Star Wars”, meets World WO.  It will be cool-steam powered battle tripods, doomed Cossack cavalry charges, victorian decco, steam punk Manhattan, 1500 foot long armored battle zeppelins, Teddy Roosevelt, souped up Tri-planes, blood on steaming metal, sex in the cockpit.  The usual.”  It will have a budget of around $3 million, and be produced by Tripod Entertainment Sdn Bhd (joint venture between Elemental Ventures Sdn Bhd and Epoch Ink Corp).  This story is not directly based on Heavy Metal, but it is a sequel to the classic War Of The Worlds novel by H.G. Wells.  It is uncertain how connected this movie is to Heavy Metal.  It might not be an Official Heavy Metal movie, but it still has Heavy Metal connections.  It was originally intended on being part of a series of Heavy Metal Videos.  And is being co-produced by Kevin Eastman (owner of Heavy Metal).”
