‘Mysterons’ materializes

Passion, Double Negative create Scarlet Digital for pic

LONDON — A cutting-edge facility at Pinewood Studios in the U.K. began production Tuesday on CGI toon series “Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons.”

More than 100 staffers are bringing to life Gerry Anderson’s “Captain Scarlet,” based on his classic 1960s puppet series, set in the near future when the world is battling mysterious aliens.

Animation specialists Passion Pictures and f/x house Double Negative have joined forces to create Scarlet Digital Imaging especially for the project.

“The early work is simply stunning,” Anderson said. “The design concepts, characterization and scripts are now rapidly starting to come together, and I am very excited by what has been accomplished so far and what is yet to come.”

The series, to be shot in high-definition, will be ready for broadcast in 2005. No formal approaches have been made to broadcasters, toy or DVD companies, but U.K. distrib Carlton Intl. will handle domestic broadcast and consumer product sales.
