Fringe's Joshua Jackson to star in "UFO" remake
#1
Variety carried this story in November, so I'm three months late. Joshua Jackson is starring in "UFO", based on the BBC TV series from the 1970s. If you have never seen an episode of "UFO" -- well, it was interesting.

[indent]"Fringe" star Joshua Jackson will topline "UFO," the feature film version of the British TV series that will be directed by visual effects wiz Matthew Gratzner.

Jackson will star as Paul Foster, a test pilot who joins S.H.A.D.O. (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defense Organization), a covert org built under a Hollywood studio that defends Earth against a race of aliens who have been abducting humans and using the body parts. The series was a cult hit in the '70s.[/indent]

There still doesn't appear to be much information at IMDB.

I recently posted about the tv show here.

I like it, and I look forward to seeing what they do with it as a movie. Personally I hope they retain a sort of retro look for it, but I'd be surprised if they do. There's so many remakes these days, with the A-Team, and now this, I've also heard rumors of them doing a MacGuyver movie, but I don't know if there's any truth to that.
