Grab your weed-whackers, folks, another take on John Wyndham’s “Day of the Triffids” is sprouting. CBC reports that filming for a 2-part TV adaptation of the classic novel is currently under way in the UK and will wrap up in April. The joint British-Canadian production is set in 2011 and stars Vanessa Redgrave, Joely Richardson, Dougray Scott, Eddie Izzard, Brian Cox and Jason Priestley. The show will debut on BBC.
