This is becoming a running theme in movies now. Take an old series and make a movie out of it. Does anyone remember UFO a 1970's sci fi series that had to deal with an organization called SHADO (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defense Organization) that was in charge of dealing with alien enemy threats. DUH... Well here is where I show both my age and my early geekness for all things sci fi. I do remember this series. My father hated it thinking it was nonsense but as a child of things that were sci fi and such , especially the british ones like Tom Bakers role in Dr Who and such , I loved it. Then again probably if I was to watch an episode today I would have to pick my jaw off the floor and give a loud WTF. Then again I still enjoy some of those older shows with the same childhood zest I did back when. I still probably will think the space girls all in tight silver outfits and odd color wigs are still hot.
There is of now not much I can find on this. A lot of the info on it is in the TBA ( to be announced) stage. There is only a couple of tid bits I could find like the special effects guru Matthew Gratzner that did movies like the The Mummy 3, Hancock, Iron Man and Alien: Resurrection will try his hand in directing and the script has already been written by Ryan Gaudet and Joseph Kanarek. Other then that this is on the watch and wait list of movies. Now to go out and rent or search the net for episodes of the series to refresh the memories of what to expect. I bet you that when the release date is close SYFY or BBC will run a marathon of UFO episodes. That will be great but until then here is some things I dug up to enjoy
