Digital Spy have a brief interview with Scott Peters and Jace Hall, the producers sci-fi remake “V”, in which they talk about adapting an older show for a modern audience, the challenge of casting the show, and balancing up character drama with sci-fi action.
It’s reassuring to hear Peters’ remark that “For me, I can only watch spaceships for a certain amount of time. If the characters are driving the show, it’s gonna be great. You have to invest in them and the technology is the icing on the cake.” Hopefully this is a good sign that remaking “V” isn’t just an excuse to show off 21st-century CGI but will instead delve a little deeper.
V premieres on November 3rd 2009.
