Writers hired for Warner Bros Produced The Island of Dr. Moreau Film. Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy have been hired to write the new film adaptation for the Warner Bros. and Appian Way produced The Island of Dr. Moreau. The new film will be an adaptation of H.G. Wells‘ novel of the same name yet set in the modern day with an ecological slant to the plot line. This will mark the fourth time this story has been adapted into a motion picture. “Most recently, the novel was adapted into a film starring Marlon Brando and Val Kilmer in 1996, but the film saw two previous adaptations as well. In 1977, Burt Lancaster and Michael York led one version, and 45 years previously, Charles Laughton and Bela Lugosi led The Island of Lost Souls in 1932.”
On the book The Island of Dr. Moreau:
The Island of Doctor Moreau is an 1896 science fiction novel written by H. G. Wells, who called the novel “an exercise in youthful blasphemy”. The text of the novel is the narration of Edward Prendick, a shipwrecked man [with a scientific education] rescued by a passing boat who is left on the island home of Doctor Moreau, who creates human-like beings from animals via vivisection. The novel deals with a number of philosophical themes, including pain and cruelty, moral responsibility, human identity, and human interference with nature.
