The well-known director of four "Harry Potter" feature films, including the last picture, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2," has been chosen to helm the big-screen adaptation of the BBC television series "Dr. Who," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Dr. Who" is one of the longest-running series in British television history. The feature film adaptation will be directed by David Yates.
The sci-fi series is the story of an alien who travels through time and space with the help of TARDIS, a machine that looks like a small police box. Producers of the film version are in the early stages of pre-production, and are looking for a screenwriter to prepare the adaptation.
