    "The Day Britain Stopped" For Ridley Scott

    By Garth Franklin Friday July 27th 2012 09:10AM
    "American Gangster" director Ridley Scott and scribe Steve Zaillian have acquired feature film rights to the 2003 BBC pseudo-documentary "The Day Britain Stopped" which their Scott Free and Film Rites companies are setting up at 20th Century Fox says The Hollywood Reporter.
    Gabriel Range's original BBC2 telemovie took place around a fictional disaster, in which a train strike is the first in a chain of events that led to a meltdown of the country’s transport system.
    This new film will be "inspired" by the original rather than being an out and out remake, and the scale will be much bigger - involving a "manmade disaster igniting a global catastophe".
    A writer is being sought to adapt the script.

    Ah. They'll rename it the 'Day the world stopped' and hope no-one remembers the film 'The Day the Earth stood still'
