How to cook for forty humans.
V The Movie will presumably retread the story of the two-part mini-series, which focused on human-suit-wearing reptilian visitors to earth who may or may not be there for nefarious purposes. The series focused heavily on humanity’s reactions to the ‘Visitors’, including those who resisted against assimilation. The 1983 mini-series was followed by 1984 sequel V: The Final Battle, a short-lived 1985 series, and a 2009 reboot starring Morena Baccarin.
Deadline reports that the movie will be the first project for a reborn Desilu Studios, originally founded in 1950 by Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball.
“We are delighted to team up with Desilu to bring the timeless – and timely – story of resistance against tyranny into the 21st Century,” Johnson said. “V will be the first of a cinematic trilogy which will tell the full epic tale in the manner I always envisioned.”
