Remember V: The Series, then V: The Movie, then V: The Reboot? Well, here comes V: The movie trilogy

February 9th, 2018 by Marc Comments

One of the biggest shows on TV for sci-fi fans in the 80s was V and it’s set to come back in style it seems.

The series told the story of a race of human looking aliens who came to earth before it being revealed they were actually lizard people in disguise, with, shock! Horror! Evil intent.

Now however, after a failed reboot series a few years back, it seems that the next stage is the big screen:

Desilu Studios, Inc has now announced that a new “big-budget” film version will be written and directed by the original’s creator Kenneth Johnson, who will also help to produce the movie alongside John Hermansen (Gray Matters) and Barry Opper (Jeepers Creepers).


“We are delighted to team up with Desilu to bring the timeless – and timely – story of resistance against tyranny into the 21st century.

“V will be the first of a cinematic trilogy which will tell the full epic tale in the manner I always envisioned,” said Johnson.

“V is a multi-billion dollar film franchise and merchandising juggernaut,” said Desilu Exec VP Steven Posen. “We couldn’t be more excited and honoured to bring this film to the millions of devoted fans worldwide.”

So there you have it… we’re not sure the audience is there to keep this alive on the big screen given that other tentpole idea such as Independence Day and Dark Universe sank last year, but we’d definitely welcome it s we loved V when it first invaded in 1983.

What do you all think?

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….
