Dwarf film in orbit

The movie spin off of television series Red Dwarf may be shot in Queensland.
The British science fiction/comedy series, which has been aired in Australia on the ABC, is slated to be made into a feature film, with producers looking to film the instalment in the Sunshine state.

The Pacific Film and Television Commission confirmed yesterday that they had spoken to those involved in the Red Dwarf movie, and it was possible that the production would come to Queensland.

They also confirmed writer/director Dave Naylor had been to Queensland earlier this year to scout for locations.

The official Red Dwarf website reported that preliminary design work for the film has started and filming is scheduled for late September.
