UFO Gets A Director

And it's Matthew Gratzner

Back in May we reported that producer Robert Evans was set on making a movie of Gerry Anderson series UFO - and now that movie has a director: newbie helmer Matthew Gratzner, who's been a visual effects supervisor for years.

Gratzner's credits include Martin Scorsese's upcoming Shutter Island, Hancock, Iron Man and Alien: Resurrection. That makes him, we suspect, a pretty good fit for a film about SHADO, a secret organisation based beneath a Hollywood studio that fights aliens who for years have been harvesting humans for their body parts.

Gratzner's own New Deal Studios has already started working on the effects and pre-visualisation, but the money's not all in place yet so there's a way to go before this starts production. Still, who doesn't want to see aliens horribly killing and dismembering people, eh? They should have the financing in no time.
