War of the Worlds Remake Coming!

Yeap.  Straight guy Tom Cruise and the king of detail, Steven Spielberg have agreed to remake the classic sci-fi pic, War of the Worlds.  The orignal Worlds was, of course, based on Orson Welles' radioplay that freaked a few people out.

The pair claim to be fasttracking the project to go before the cameras before Indiana Jones 4.  David Koepp (writer-director of Secret Window, one of many writers on Spiderman 1, also wrote Panic Room) has been handed the rewrite.
