Red Dwarf - The Movie


Until the much talked about and eagerly waited Red Dwarf movie actually starts filming or better still hits our screens, here is a mix of fact, fiction, rumour and gossip regarding the movies fate...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Following is snippet on the current state of the Red Dwarf movie as detailed in a letter by Doug Naylor and read out at this years Dimension Jump convention.

... American funders are flying into the UK today to continue discussions we began at the Cannes Film Festival to fund the Red Dwarf movie. I fully expect that in a matter of a few days, maybe a couple of weeks, Red Dwarf the Movie finally will be green lit, and by early August I expect to be deep into pre-production in Australia...

...Only last month I found myself negotiating with the Australian government to work out the qualifying Australian expenditure on the budget's tax offset to help raise ten percent of the budget and then a week later explaining the deal to a group of bankers. That isn't a typo.

But now we're closer than we've ever been, ever. We really, really are.Red Dwarf - The Movie may be shot in Australia. Preliminary design work is currently underway. Pre-production proper will begin in mid-July, and shooting is slated for January 2005.

The complete version of this letter can be viewed on the Official Red Dwarf Site at http://www.reddwarf.co.uk
