David Yates has just spoken with Bleeding Cool. Hannah will be back with exact quotes later, but here’s what Yates told her:
He’s still developing a Dr Who movie no matter what Steven Moffat said last weekend at the Dr Who convention;
It’s still five or six years away, however;
At this stage Yates thinks it’s a real possibility that the film will tie in with the TV series, though it’s too early for any kind of confirmation;
Yates said he’s looking forward to sitting down with Steven Moffat – who he refers to as a ‘genius’ – and discussing his plans.
I can’t imagine Yates would be saying all of this if Moffat had been right about there not being any plans for a film at all.
