Like Wells' classic book that was presented as a news reporter's first hand memoir, and the famous 1938 Orson Welles radio broadcast that caused Americans to believe an actual invasion was in progress, the movie treats the invasion as reality. WAR OF THE WORLDS THE TRUE STORY is presented as the eyewitness account of Bertie Wells, the last living survivor of the Earth/Mars War as he struggles to find his wife amidst the destruction of humankind at the hands of terrifying alien invaders...
Years before Spielberg’s production of War of the Worlds, in 2001, another large budget movie of the H.G. Wells story was in the works by director Timothy Hines. With a budget of $42 million and in negotiation with Charlize Theron and Michael Caine to star, the movie was abruptly halted along with a slew of action driven Hollywood pictures when the 9-11 terrorist attack occurred. Following the shutdown, Director Timothy Hines and producer partners Susan Goforth and Donovan Le spent more than a decade to remount the movie and bring their unique epic version of the H.G. Wells classic to the screen.
