Has DOCTOR WHO Movie Found A Director?

NUP_102225_0224.JPGBack in the end of May, the BBC nonchalantly mentioned that they had a feature film version of their popular television series Doctor Who being developed. Now Bleeding Cool has has word that a director has been approached to helm the in development project- Euros Lyn.

Lyn has already helmed some of the series’s more acclaimed episodes since it was revised in 2005 including “The End Of The World,” “The Girl In The Fireplace” and the 2006 Christmas special “The Runaway Bride.” Most recently, Lyn completed work directing all five installments of the upcoming Who spin-off, Torchwood: Children Of Earth.

While there has been no official confirmation, Lyn will be accompanying out-going Who producer Russell T. Davies, the person many feel most likely to write the project, and current Who star David Tennant to the San Diego Comic Con. Is an announcement in the offing? We’ll see.

Exciting developments if it all pans out. Makes one what they’d try and base the film on considering all the “kitchen sink” episodes RTD has given us to date.
