The first photos have arrived from the upcoming modern-set adaptation of H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds, starring Gabriel Byrne and Elizabeth McGovern. The series was developed for TV by Canal Plus, Fox Networks Group Europe & Africa, and AGC Television, and is currently seeking networks to pick it up in the U.S. and Europe.

Published in 1898, War of the Worlds remains one of the best-known and most celebrated science fiction works of all time. It tells the story of a Martian invasion of Earth, and one man’s efforts to survive in a world being transformed by the merciless alien species. War of the Worlds has been adapted many times before, most famously as a 1938 radio drama directed and narrated by Orson Welles, a 1953 movie directed by Byron Haskin, a 1978 concept album by Jeff Wayne, and a 2005 movie directed by Steven Spielberg.
