The BBC confirms a big budget “Doctor Who Film" to be directed by Harry Potter veteran David Yates.
The film will apparently “take a fresh approach to the cult sci-fi show.” “Russell T. Davies and then Steven Moffat have done their own transformations, which were fantastic, but we have to put that aside and start from scratch,” Yates added.
The project currently has no other names attached to it besides Yates, who said “We’re going to to spend two to three years to get it right.” It is unknown if anyone from the current or previous DW production teams will be involved.
It is also unknown how this film will affect the Doctor Who TV Show, about to enter its 6th Revived Series.
