I always liked the war of the worlds story. I just hope that Steven spielberg wont screw this up and make it another independence day. It probably would have been better if the film was set in the very late 1800's, like the book.

Well who else is interested in the film?

Looks good, but I agree that it should have been from the late 1800's instead..

Guys,
there is an 1800s version out now.
Made by the English production company PENDRAGON.
Based entirely on the origional book. They have a website that has pics and trailers.
Very low budget.
Not sure if it is a cinema release or goin straight to DVD.

To be honest there are several things putting me off it.

1) Tom Cruise is a crap actor.
2) It will turn out to be your typical "Hollywood" moralistic crap (at least the trailer look that way).
3) It looks to be a bastardisation of the original which rarely works out.

I will probably just wait for the DvD.

The first Hollywood version of "War of the Worlds" was moralistic as well, though I don't think it would be that religiously overtoned in the new one.
