Joshua Jackson to Star in Film Adaptation of British TV Series UFO 2009-11-23 08:15:53

Joshua Jackson Sets His Sights on a UFO

Looks like Joshua Jackson is ready to take his sci-fi acting experience from Fringe to the big screen. The actor will star in UFO, a film adaptation of the British TV series from the '70s. Jackson will play leading man Paul Foster, a test pilot who must protect our planet from a new race of body-snatching extraterrestrials.

As a bonus, Matthew Gratzner — the man behind Iron Man and Superman Returns — is on board for special effects, so you know Jackson's pretty face won't be the only stunning visual.

We haven't seen a whole lot of Jackson on the silver screen recently, so I'm looking forward to his triumphant return — even if alien entertainment isn't exactly my favorite genre. What do you make of this news? Are you familiar with the original TV show?
