A new Dad's Army film was announced today starring Toby Jones as Captain George Mainwaring and Bill Nighy as Sergeant Arthur Wilson. The film will be based off the BBC original comedy by the same name.
Fans of the original will be excited to know that the original writer of the series Jimmy Perry will be serving as the film's producer alongside Damien Jones. Digital Spy reports the adaptation will stay true to the original.
The plot will remain faithful to the show, with Captain Mainwaring commanding a makeshift troop of soldiers and defending his hometown against the invading German army.
There is no news on when they predict the film to be completed by, however fans are always happier with quality rather than poorly-planned and/or rushed production.
