V Remake Set To Bring Mouse-Munching Back in Vogue

Everyone knows how much Ben Silverman loves to recycle ideas, so it comes as a bit of a surprise that ABC has placed a pilot order for a remake of famed eighties mini-series V and not NBC. Whereas the first incarnation featured a lead character who was a male photojournalist, this modernized spin will focus on the actions of a female Homeland Security agent. Our only question: Does this mean that the mouse-eating lizard people will now be stand-ins for Al Qaeda, or will they stick with the whole Nazi allegory from the first go-round? [HR]
