I want absolutely beautiful cinematography!  Cool  The series was so visually stunning that it will be a let-down if the movie is gritty or 'realistic.'  I know, I don't ask for much.  Undecided

Pity Peter Jackson isn't helming it. Then you could get gritty, realistic and stunning all in one package. (Hey, Straker got gritty periodically). I agree, no hairy chest, please. (Oh, wait, we have to please Yuctar also, so maybe we'll put up with a little hairy chest ... peeking through bandages with Paul in traction and done up like a bad mummy movie character ... ?  Cheesy sort of big screen hurt/comfort?)

What do I want in a UFO movie? a lead in to another movie. I think three would be nice, with a positive ending (not necessarily a win over the aliens in a permanent fashion, but a "yes, we have the ability to kick*ss!" sort of ending)

  Cool

That sounds really good to me!  Smiley  I think they are planning on making a trilogy, which would be abso-tively wonderful if they pull it off!  Smiley

But they MUST have the right Straker!!!!  Or none of it will work.  Cry
Yours,
Denise

I want silver lycra in Moonbase, Straker in sunglasses, Paul Foster in the background, aliens in red suits, heavy thunderous music (Hans Zimmer, Howard Shore) Great CGI and a story that is true to the series...... don't want a lot do I?
A story that is a mix of  Identified, Exposed and Kill Straker would be the best!
Perhaps that should be the next challenge after Lines...... Grin Grin Smiley

Seriously, a well written story! Care in casting, especially Straker!  Cool

And please, don't pair Ginny up with Paul! I know she's not going to be with Ed, I've accepted that.  Sad

Put her with Alec,  Keith, Lew, anyone but Paul!   :Smiley

Seriously?
Ok then.
Story starts off with UFO attack on ISS.(2010)  NASA sends up Shuttle to investigate. Straker in command ( Andy Whitfield? Still thinking about casting him)
Discover confirmation of evidence of UFOs. Meets with governments, SHADO set up. ( No Henderson - yet?)
based under very succesful film studios on outskirts London. ( has to be really!)
2020; Alec Freeman ( Russel Crowe? .. bit old? ActuallyJeff Goldblum...?) wakes up in bed next to .... ? goes to work .. as film executive. set the scene for: Shado HQ. Straker on sound stages already, both get called out for 'meeting' (UFO)
YEs, we have to have the office elevator.. in a way;
possibly a secret door into a small lift with additional security. enter SHADO HQ. modern... very very modern! ANd no tight cat suits! Uniforms Grey  and simple?
Action sequence; UFO attack. bring in Skydivers, etc.
Okay ; That's the beginning. Someone else carry on? or rewrite?!
If the film is going to be true to the series, then there will haev to be a lot of overlap,and the necessary introductions to the 'hardware'.
Straker's car? well,,, tlet me think about that. Perhaps a Mercedes C111 ( vintage! Gull wing doors!)
I'll think seriously about casting people later!

I still think Michael Ironside would make a good Henderson, he has done military roles before, quite well! He's a tad youger that Grant Taylor was but that shouldn't be a problem.

Music? Hans Zimmer, outstanding choice!

Paul Foster gets recruited and pulls on of his boneheaded stunts early on. Right away Straker snaps him back like a rubber band, and makes him tow tha mark!  Wink Snap to Paul! No free ride for you this time. The aliens launch a mass attack on Moonbase as soon as it goes operational. Lots of damage, this is war!

Okay, whos' next?

Matt  Cool

They have to do a rescue mission to Moonbase ( oh..sorry.. that's my Combined Operations story!)Hey do you  think the screen writers could use some hel;p from us?
Paul Foster  doesn't save the day.. iinstead he gets abducted .. adn they have to rescue him as he knows all about Shado.
Your turn!

Ginny leads the assault team to rescue Paul. When they get him back to Moonbase (what's left of it) Paul seems different. He tries to put a move on Ginny and she slaps him! She sends him back to Earth for Jackson to evaluate.

On Earth Straker goes to argue with Henderson (I'm still thinking Micheal Ironside as Henderson here, he's a real hard ass.) over the lack of funding for the additional interceptors. They would have made the difference!  Angry

Five UFO's enter the atmosphere, on course for HQ. Peter Carlin launches in Sky 1 to intercept. He manages to get four of them before he is hit. He punches out and one UFO is left heading for HQ!  Shocked

Who's next!  Smiley

Screenwriters? We don't need no stinkin' screenwriters. We'll just write it and send it in!  Cheesy

I actually fancy Ed Harris for Henderson ( I fancy Ed Harris anyway, but he'd be a great HEnderson!)

The one UFO that gets through is being controlled by Foster.. don't ask how.. this is sci-fi, anything can happen! Freeman  and Straker have ot prevent Paul from allowinghte UFO to do any furhter damage.. they knock Paul out ( aren't we all mean to Paul!) and then have to send in  the mobiles to destroy the UFo. Unfrotunately the UFO..............?????

Ed Harris? Never thought of that, great idea! He has the right look and the the military parlance suits him.  Wink

I'll hold off on the UFO to see if anyone else joins in!

Any other takers?  Smiley

The UFO is actually carrying a diplomatic team from the homeworld of the aliens to see if they can help straighten out the situation because all the others were actually part of a criminal network the aliens proper are trying to stop but have had no real success ( think russian mafia and the mob in cahoots)

yes, dragon is twisted.
