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?

We are June 2011 and nothing has happened with this movie! True or not? both delayed production? No photos, videos or any trace of that Josh is in this movie or that you have recorded some stage! Anyone know anything?
