Sam Raimi may direct 'The Day of the Triffids'

Posted on

Sam Raimi is interested in directing a new adaptation of the classic sci-fi novel The Day of the Triffids, Deadline reports. Mandate Pictures won an auction for the rights to the book, about a meteorite storm that leaves the majority of the population blind and vulnerable to an army of ambulatory, man-eating plants. Mandate will produce the film in conjunction with Raimi, who has expressed interest in helming the project.
