David Yates to Direct DOCTOR WHO Movie

It seems that Harry Potter director David Yates had a very good reason to pass on the big screen adaptation of Stephen King's "The Stand". He will go on to direct an adaptation of the cult sci-fi TV series "Doctor Who". The series deals with time travel and fighting intergalactic evil and we already know that Yates can handle big visual effects spectacles, so he might be a great fit. Not to mention that both Yates and the good Doctor are of British origins. The production still requires a script, so according to Yates : "We’re looking at writers now. We’re going to spend two to three years to get it right,. It needs quite a radical transformation to take it into the bigger arena."

The big screen adaptation of "Doctor Who" will linger on in pre-pre-production until Yates finishes work on a smaller unknown project. Also, Warner Bros. seems to want Yates for their biopic, "The Imitation Game", which depicts the life of English mathematician Alan Turing, who laid down the foundation for modern computers and worked as a codebreaker during World War II. Clearly, David Yated is going to be very busy for next few years.
