Slightly off topic but sci-fi enthusiasts, like myself, will be pleased to read the following Scotsman report:
"the original film is to be remade, featuring a £25m budget, stars of the calibre of Ewan McGregor and James McAvoy, Scottish locations and a screenplay from the writers of current superhero hit Iron Man"
Hopefully we will see some new technology innovations....
The original film was fine, and it still stands.
If they could only un-make all of the sequels and the crappy TV series and just leave the story where the first film ended, that would be perfect for me.
True, The original was great. The later sequels (bar 3 which was acceptable) should never have been made.
If it does go all hollywood, and has some Scottish actors then it might be more authentic....??
