Doctor Who, I presume

David Yates and Jane Trantor are working on a Doctor Who feature film. Expect several years in development and a film that will not "follow from or be based on the current TV series in any way."

This combination could bode well for a new big screen incarnation of The Doctor, since Tranter was involved with the series reboot in 2005, and Yates preceded his successful “Harry Potter” outings directing several BBC TV projects, including the acclaimed “State of Play”.

I haven't seen the American remake but the original State of Play was very well done. And as Yates tends to work with an ensemble could this mean... Bill Nighy as the Doctor?

Too much to hope for. But James McAvoy would do an excellent job as well.
