Pendragon Pictures announces that its production of “War of the Worlds” will premiere for general release on Halloween, October 31, 2002 instead of summer 2003, as originally planned.
Director Timothy Hines explains, “As the details of our production became more refined, we realized we had it within our grasp to release by Halloween, which I really want to do as Halloween is the night Orson Welles broadcast his famous radio version of “War of the Worlds.” I feel the approach to our production has a great deal in common with the approach Orson Welles took with the material, and we will make history on Halloween night, 2002.”
