    Here is a link to a story about this from CNN.com:
    Live Action Thunderbirds
    Is there an original thought left in Hollywood?

    Used to be a favourite of mine as a little lad along with Dr Who. At this point it may be worth finding out more about.

    Do a movie based on Thunderbirds, but remove the coolest element of the show (the marrionettes), doesn't make much sense to me.

    According to one of our daily snoozepapers, the stars of Thunderbirds the Movie are... Harrison Ford as Jeff Tracy, and Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and Cuba Gooding Jr will play the rest of the team, there you go, who laughed?[​IMG]

    Jonathan Frakes directing a spin-off from a TV series famed for its wooden acting and OTT plot lines. Where have I heard this before? [​IMG]
