Chariots of the Gods – Is an adaption needed or wanted?
Posted by LiveFor on March 11, 2009
Paradox Entertainment has acquired screen rights to the 1968 controversial best-seller”Chariots of the Gods” reports Variety.
Having sold 68 million copies worldwide over the past few decades, Erich von Daniken’s book explores evidence that different ancient civilizations were visited by extraterrestrials.
That premise will be turned into a science fiction film. The idea has already formed the basis of various films and television from the “Stargate” franchise to the most recent “Indiana Jones” adventure and we all know how that turned out
Paradox controls the Robert E. Howard estate and is developing a movie version of “Conan” with Millennium Films.
Not sure whether a Chariots of the Gods adaption is a good or a bad thing. It has been around for ages and has been used many times before. At the moment I’m not too excited about the whole thing.
