Pacey spots UFO

Small-screen stud Joshua Jackson (“Dawson’s Creek”, “Fringe”) will star in the feature film version of Brit TV series “UFO”.

VFX vet Matthew Gratzner (“Iron Man”) will direct.

For those not in the know, “UFO” was the first live-action series from “Thunderbirds” creators Gerry Anderson and Sylvia Anderson. Despite the assumption of many TV station executives, the series was not aimed at children, but deliberately sought an older audience; many episodes featured adult themes such as adultery, divorce, and drug use.

The series ran from 26 episodes, including the pilot.

In the film, former child star Jackson (remember young Charlie from the “Mighty Ducks” series?) will play Paul Foster, a test pilot who joins S.H.A.D.O. (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defense Organization), a covert org built under a Hollywood studio that defends Earth against a race of aliens who have been abducting humans and using the body parts.

“Character development is the most critical part of ‘UFO,’ and Joshua’s terrific talent and range is exactly what I need to convey the inner conflict of the character of Paul Foster,” Gratzner tells Variety.

Filmwise, Jackson’s credits include “The Skulls”, “Cruel Intentions”, “Gossip”, “Urban Legend”, and “Bobby”.
