Jonathan Drake, Managing Director of Impossible Pictures:
"We won't be replacing the UK show in the international market but complementing it. It will provide a positive glow for our catalogue of existing Primeval shows. And if something were to happen to the UK version, the brand still survives."Impossible Pictures and Omni Film Productions previously worked together on Defying Gravity.
The original UK version of Primeval is currently filming its fifth series, having already wrapped on the fourth, in preparation for a 2011 return to ITV and Watch. The rights to a movie are still owned by Warner Bros, having been sold in May 2009, but there's been no firm movement on that separate project.
