Ali Larter Possibly Joining UFO


Forbidden Planet has posted an interview with director Matthew Gratzner in which he talks about UFO, his feature adaptation of the Gerry Anderson-created 1970s TV series.

In the film, Joshua Jackson (“Fringe”) will star as Paul Foster, a test pilot who joins S.H.A.D.O. (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defense Organization), a covert organization built under a Hollywood studio that defends Earth against a race of aliens who have been abducting humans and using the body parts.

In the interview, Gratzner says that “Heroes” star Ali Larter is a frontrunner for the role of Virginia Lake.

“We’ve talked to Ali Larter, who’s very interested,” he said. “I’ve actually met with her, and I think she would be a great addition to the picture. Lake is very strong and obviously also very feminine, and Ali Larter definitely encompasses that.”
