Peters said even though this will not be like the original the new V will still focus on what happens when the masses have blind faith in their leaders.
Jace Hall, the former head of Warner Brothers’ video-gaming division, and who has worked on titles including F.E.A.R., will help expand V into other platforms, including gaming.
By what we hear the new V will center on Erica Evans, a Homeland Security agent with a son who’s got major problems and issues. When the aliens arrive, her son attaches himself to them and helps them in their conquest, causing tension within the family. As with the original V, several storylines will unfold simultaneously. As in the ’80s version, the show will open with an enormous army of spaceships hovering over the world’s major cities. (For you younger guys and gals that no nothing of the original ‘V’ think ‘Independence Day’).
Just a note: Original V writer-producer-director Kenneth Johnson recently attempted to revive V as ‘V: The Second Generation’ but is not involved in the Peters version. IMBD has the Johnson version listed to be released in 2009.
