VFX Veteran to Direct Adaptation of ‘UFO’

Variety is reporting that veteran visual effects supervisor Matthew Gratzner (Hancock, Iron Man, Alien: Resurrection) will be making his directorial debut on an adaptation of the 1970s British TV series, UFO.

Like the original Gerry Anderson series, the film will revolve around Shado (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defense Organization), a covert military operation hidden beneath a Hollywood studio. Shado operatives continually battle an alien race that are kidnapping and killing humans for body parts.

“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.”

    Right, it’s going to be REMADE “modern style” with more body parts, killing, blood and all the miserable sensationalistic garbage that appeals primarily to the 18-24yr demographic (sponsors like that– they get rich) who can easily
    accept all strangers as hostile aggressors requiring a violent confrontation.

    Their running out of ideas in Hollywood.
    That’s why there exploiting old ones
    like the UFO tv series, Lost in Space, ect.

    I grew up watching this show in the 70s when I was a kid..

    Hollywood– Keep yer paws off it!!!!!
