From the Beginning

This story is my Uberization , based on the 1951 screenplay, The Day The Earth Stood Still , by Edmund H. North (which is based on the novel, Farewell To The Master, by Harry Bates). No money is being made from this project and no copyright infringement intended.

I always wanted to see this film remade with Klaatu as a female. I initially (many years ago) thought Sigourney Weaver would have made an excellent Klaatu (even if they changed the Helen character to male). Instead, TPTB remade this classic with Keanu Reeves. I love KR but the remake, IMHO, completely missed the message of and couldn't hold a candle to the original. This was written as an exercise to get myself out of dry spell.

All of the cast names have been changed in this version (except for Drew Pearson and Gabriel Heatter, who were a real newsmen). Anyway, here is my effort to retell the original story with two of our favorite women in the pivotal roles.
