Director to bring Mars to the big screen Ananova

A British-born director is to bring Mars to the big screen by using film from hi-tech Nasa robots when they land on the red planet’s surface, it was revealed today. George Butler has been given access to the images which will be filmed by Nasa’s robotic landers which are due to land on Mars in January 2004. And he will produce scenes designed to give the feeling that audiences are actually walking on Mars, using parts of Antarctica as a double for Mars.
