Richard Todd

Dam Busters

The Dambusters [1954]Peter Jackson is to produce The DamBusters. I'm very fond of the original, and so am not sure about this, but I'm reasonably confident that it'll be in safe hands - with almost anyone else I'd be very worried about the product. It looks like they'll be using some materials declassified since the original film. I hope that they find some way to give Richard Todd a cameo.

It will film in 2007, and will be the directing debut of Christian Rivers. It'll be shot in both the UK and New Zealand and will cost $30-$40 million, partially funded by Studio Canal.
