Thunderbirds - Thunderbirds Are Go Again?

The creator of British TV series THUNDERBIRDS has announced plans for a modern reboot of the 1960s classic.
Gerry Anderson wants to bring his team of International Rescue adventurers back to life using animated graphics, instead of the marionette puppetry his show was famed for.
He explains, "It will certainly be modernised. It will be a brand new show, keeping all the main characters, all the machines and all the locations. It will have all the elements that made Thunderbirds popular in the first place but will be made with today's technology and today's thinking and today's pace."
But Anderson could face a challenge from his ex-wife and former collaborator Sylvia, who co-created Thunderbirds and provided the voice of Lady Penelope.
The 73-year-old producer, who was married to Anderson from 1962 to 1975, wants more credit for her contributions and has reportedly consulted lawyers about halting production on the new series.
She tells Britain's The Sun, "It's not about the money, it's about recognition. Gerry and I worked as a team. I invented all the characters and he came up with the stories."
