David Yates directs a Dr. Who-Movie
David Yates, Regisseur der letzten vier Potter-Filme, dreht für die BBC einen Dr.Who-Film. Ich fand seine Potters ja ganz angenehm, auch wenn ich der Handlung nicht ganz folgen konnte, da ich bei den Büchern bei Band 4 aus Faulheitsgründen ausgestiegen bin. Ich bin gespannt.
„Harry Potter“ director David Yates is teaming up with the BBC to turn its iconic sci-fi TV series „Doctor Who“ into a bigscreen franchise. Yates, who directed the last four Potter films, told Daily Variety that he is about to start work on developing a „Doctor Who“ movie with Jane Tranter, head of L.A.-based BBC Worldwide Prods.
„We’re looking at writers now. We’re going to spend two to three years to get it right,“ he said. „It needs quite a radical transformation to take it into the bigger arena.“ […]
„The notion of the time-travelling Time Lord is such a strong one, because you can express story and drama in any dimension or time,“ Yates said. […] [He] made clear that his movie adaptation would not follow on from the current TV series, but would take a completely fresh approach to the material.
„Russell T. Davies and then Steven Moffat have done their own transformations, which were fantastic, but we have to put that aside and start from scratch,“ he said.
