WATCH: Jeff Wayne re-releasing War Of The Worlds starring Michael Sheen

October 12th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Jess Wayne is bringing back another version of his hit musical Jeff Wayne’s The War of the Worlds.

A few years ago he released a new version starring Liam Neeson as the narrator originally played by Richard and, as much as we live big Liam, it wasn’t very good.

The new version sees Michael Sheen taking over the role joined by a host of new stars.

While we don’t believe that anything will ever top the original musical, we’ll be sure to check it out.

Get a taste of how it will sound below:

Michael Sheen leads the cast of Audible’s all-star dramatisation of Jeff Wayne’s The War Of The Worlds concept album. The new drama also features Taron Egerton, Theo James and Adrian Edmondson and we’ve got an exclusive clip of Sheen in action as George, The Journalist for you to enjoy…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
