In what can only be described as the greatest news ever The 80s series V is heading to the big screen – kicking off a trilogy of new movies.
The '80s sci-fi told the story of a group of carnivorous reptilian humanoid aliens, known as Visitors, who arrive on Earth and attempt to take over.
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
Kenneth said: "We are delighted to team up with Desilu to bring the timeless – and timely – story of resistance against tyranny into the 21st century."
He continued: "V will be the first of a cinematic trilogy which will tell the full epic tale in the manner I always envisioned."
V first aired on NBC in 1983, culminating in a sequel series called The Final Battle. That wasn't the end for V though, as it returned for another run of episodes the following year.
"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."
