UFO (2011) - PREVIEW


UFO (2011)

Joshua Jackson, Ali Larter
Director: Matthew Gratzner

U.S. Opening Date: TBA 2011

This movie will be based on the rarely seen 1970s sci-fi TV series of the same name by Gerry Anderson of Thunderbirds and Space 1999 fame. The original series used real life actors instead of marionettes and featured noteworthy special effects by the legendary David Meddings (Batman, The Spy Who Loved Me).

The film will revolve around SHADO (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defense Organization), a secret military operation hidden beneath a Hollywood studio, whose operatives battle an alien race that has been kidnapping and killing humans for decades and using the body parts.

Special effects guru Matthew Gratzner will make his directorial debut on the movie. (His resume includes the likes of The Mummy 3, Hancock, Iron Man and Alien: Resurrection.)

Ryan Gaudet and Joseph Kanarek have already written a script.

"The story, characters and situations Mr. Anderson created in UFO are timeless and engaging," Gratzner said. "My vision is to utilize visual effects as a supportive storytelling device that draws audiences into this universe."

One can only hope it’s better than the 2004 Thunderbirds movie . . .
