Mark Gatiss on Dad's Army movie: "I was genuinely sceptical"

19 November 2014 3:27 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Mark Gatiss has revealed that he was "sceptical" about the upcoming Dad's Army movie remake.

The Sherlock co-creator and actor will star as Captain Mainwaring's colonel-in-chief in the new version, Radio Times reports.

He promised fans of the original that the remake is "charming" and stays faithful to the classic BBC sitcom.

"I was genuinely sceptical - as I think many people will be - but the script really loves the original," he said.

"It's charming and quite moving at times. People love the original and want to honour it but it has to be its own thing as well. So far I'm having a great time."

Toby Jones is starring as Captain Mainwaring, with Oliver Parker (Johnny English Reborn) directing.

Bill Nighy will play Wilson, with Catherine Zeta-Jones as journalist Rose, Inbetweeners actor Blake Harrison as Pike, Sir Michael Gambon as Godfrey, Daniel Mays as Walker, Sir Tom Courtenay »

Growing up, one of my favourite things to do was sit at my grandparents house and tuck down for an episode of the brilliant BBC sitcom Dad’s Army on a Saturday night. Week in. Week out.

A new film is in the works, and today the full cast for it was revealed. Bill Nighy will head up a 2015 version of Dad’S Army as Wilson, along with Catherine Zeta Jones (Rose), Toby Jones (Manwaring), The Inbetweeners star Blake Harrison (Pike), Tom Courtenay as Corporal Jones, Michael Gambon as Godfrey, Danny Mays as (Walker), Bill Paterson (Fraser), Sarah Lancashire , Alison Steadman, Mark Gatiss and Annette Crosbie.

Universal Pictures has come onboard the upcoming film adaptation of the classic British sitcom "Dad's Army" with the full cast list being revealed today.

Set in a fictional south-coast English town in 1944, the story follows the Home Guard platoon, a group of local volunteers in the sleepy town of Walmington-on-Sea who have been ruled ineligible for military service due to advanced age or extenuating circumstances.

As previously announced, Toby Jones will play the pompous and diminutive Captain Mainwaring while Bill Nighy is set as the dry Sergeant Wilson. Joining them are Catherine Zeta Jones as journalist Rose Winters, Tom Courtenay as Corporal Jones, Michael Gambon as Godfrey, Blake Harrison as Pike, Danny Mays as Walker and Bill Paterson as Fraser. »
