Rosamund Pike Joins “Thunderbirds” Series

Rosamund Pike, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Rasmus Hardiker and David Menkin are all set to lend their voices to the upcoming TV series reboot “Thunderbirds Are Go!” from ITV Studios, Pukeko Pictures and Weta Workshop.

An update of Gerry and Sylivia Anderson’s classic supermarionation kids series from the 1960s, the new version will combine CG animation and live-action miniature sets.

Like the original, the story follows the Tracy family and their rocket ships which form the organisation of International Rescue.

Pike will voice agent Lady Penelope, while the other three will voice the five Tracy brothers (Hardiker and Menkin will double up on roles). The original series’ David Graham is reprising his role as Lady Penelope’s chauffeur Parker.

26 half-hour episodes are slated to debut on UK’s ITV in 2015.
