Along with the aforementioned cast, Robert Carlyle and  Rupert Graves are also part of the production.

Filming on War of the Worlds TV mini-series, based on the science fiction novel by H.G. Wells, has already begun in Liverpool, England. The new War of the Worlds mini-series will be a three part mini-series. It will be directed by Craig Viveiros and written by Peter Harness.

Craig Viveiros had this to say about the new TV mini-series:

H.G. Wells’ seminal novel has been adapted for the screen many times but it’s always had a contemporary (and American) setting, this is the first version to be set in London and the Home Counties during the Edwardian period. Peter’s scripts manage to honour the source material with great skill, but we aim to provide a thoroughly modern thrill ride for the audience, delivering an alien invasion story that will shock and awe audiences across the globe.

War of the Worlds‘ plot synopsis: “follows George (played by Rafe Spall) and his partner Amy (Eleanor Tomlinson) as they attempt to defy society and start a life together. Rupert Graves is Frederick, George’s elder brother, and Robert Carlyle plays Ogilvy, an astronomer and scientist. The War of the Worlds tells their story as they face the escalating terror of an alien invasion, fighting for their lives against an enemy beyond their comprehension.”
