The director of the previous four Harry Potter films, David Yates, has confirmed that he is working with the BBC to develop Doctor Who into a movie.

The film - which will take two to three years to get right - will take a fresh approach to the show, according to Yates.

A report on BBC News said that Yates is believed to be working with Jane Tranter, the head of LA-based BBC Worldwide Productions.

However, a statement from a BBC spokesman said that the project won't reach cinemas for several years and, as yet, there is no script, cast or production crew in place.
