Bill Nighy and Toby Jones are being lined up for a new take on Dad's Army...

A new modern day take on Dad's Army is heading to cinemas, it's been revealed. The news broke over the weekend that Jimmy Perry, the creator of the show (along with the late David Croft), has agreed to the project, with the Telegraph reporting that it's "on the condition he doesn't have to do anything".

Toby Jones is being lined up to take on the role of Captain Mainwaring in the film, with Bill Nighy set to play Sergeant Wilson. The pair inherit roles originally played by Arthur Lowe and John Le Mesurier.

Damian Jones is to produce the film, although we don't know yet who's writing and directing it. More as we hear it...
