NEWS ON THE MOVIE!!
The following is directly from the Movie Production Office:
Coast To Coast Productions has been awarded a contract by the BBCm with
the approval of the "Doctor Who" Production Office, for THREE Doctor
Who feature films. The first of the series will be produced and
directed by Peter Litten and George Dugdale -- who are most famous
recently for creating the prosthetic makeup effects and the
visual image for "Max Headroom" show. They have done special
effects for "Doctor Who" and "Blake's 7". Peter's mentor is
Chris Tucker ("Elephant Man, "Quest For Fire"). The screenplay is
complete -- written by Mark Ezra. Peter and George are currently in
Los ANgeles negotiating for American distribution with major
American studios. The film is fully financed (privately) with a
working budget of $14 million. The current plan calls for actual
preproduction to begin in January, Special Effects work has already
begun in London. Principal photography is scheduled to begin
in April in Ireland. Release is currently expected to be in
November in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of the show.
There is no specific information on the story line, but The Doctor will
be in the tradition of the TV show (not the previous movies!). He
will be a Time Lord from Gallifrey. The Doctor will have three
companions: one male, one female and one "surprise". The female
companion has been cast and will be played by Caroline Munro. The
Doctor has not been cast. It will be a British actor. Peter and
George are very interested in any ideas Doctor Who fans have about
who shold be cast in the role.
If you want to suggest/nominate someone, please send your
suggestions - and any reasoning behind the suggestions - to me :
Jean Airey, 1306 W. Illinois, Aurora, Illinois 60506.
I will send all the input I receive to the Movie Production Office.
The tentative title for the movie is "DOCTOR WHO -- THE MOVIE." If
you have an opinion about that title or an alternate title, please
let me know and I'll send that on as well.
