I was waiting to reply
to see if anyone else would first.
it is an interesting prospect, and I think that the fans and model builders can carry it off. Gerry's son seems to be interested enough and capable to be a producer of those projects. and I think that even if they are made for children on Saturday morning, it would be a great step and bridging action.
if it were done to be something like the Anderson shows of the past, space 1999, UFO, then I think a whole new era for sci-fi and building an industry for sci fi fans, is the best thing that can be done for entertainment, since the tv westerns were made for that fan base.
lets face it, we are the elders now, and sci fi was built as an industry for us. so this should continue, and the Anderson name should lead the pack in a whole new attitude towards sci fi serials.

I agree Jim. Although sadly there are rumours that the books will be a disappointment to 'older' fans. There is also speculation that the proposed new Thunderbirds tv series will be pretty far removed from Thunderbirds as we knew it. :( We can only wait and see.

Who knows, maybe the 'possible/maybe/perhaps/one day ?? ' UFO film will not disappoint.. ;)

Do you think that if they made a new movie, with new props, and similar actors, but went canon on the script [screenplay] and plot, that it would be a success?
Should they jazz it up like with the 'Brady bunch' remake movies?
Perhaps go out completely, as with 'the day the earth stood still', with Reeves?
maybe just a new deal completely, and be a stand on its own movie?
I think the first concept should be the starter movie or part of it, and then go with something new.
Jim

These are only books - not a proposed film- and the Andersons don't own any rights to any of Gerry's work now. I don't think there is any intention (as yet) to make anything other than books, although if they are very successful, someone might pick them up for a film/tv series etc.
We will have to see.
As for now,, I am still waiting for the UFO film. :-\

I know with the fantastic 4 comic book, marvel commix, several fan films preceded the actual movies. as the fan films got better and better, the more attention was poured on seriously making a major motion picture.
the success of spider-man opened the door. and all of the marvel heroes are getting their own movies.
so the procedure of success is;
1. make comic books
2. simple movies, even hardware wars level, will draw attention and support for the subject.
3. improve the movies that are made until they can actually compete with major motion pictures.
even a slide show type voice over short can get the ball rolling.
