There have been numerous other efforts posing crawly in- vertebrates as a terror to civ- ilization, but in London veteran Saltzman: Fact or fiction? film publicist Tom Carlile has promised that "Micronauts" will focus on some new twists. He noted that the movie marks Harry Saltzman's. first indepen- dent production since "The Battle of Britain" in 1969. How- ever, the Albert Broccoli-Saltz- man team has produced 10 James Bond epics with the latest "The Spy Who Loved Me" now being wrappeU-up as a Christmas present for 007 fans. "Mtcronauts" also represents a reunion for the Canadian-born Saltzman and Yank Carliie, who stuck together through several Bonds after first working togeth- er on a Bob Hope opus "Call Me Bwana"in'63. Carlile has been workingStateside the first half of the year touting his 25th movie as-signment, Norman Jewison's sci- ence fiction feature "Rollerball."Saltzman, he says, will take over the entire stage complex ofEngland's Shepperton Studios for his forthcoming sci-fi adventure.It is expected to take three months to build all the spectacu-lar sets (under supervision of art director Peter Murton)."1 may be buggy, however, by the time we get around to slwot-ing with the. actors," confided Carlile. who said a form of mi-crophotography had already started at London's Oxford Scien-. tific Film Centre. ALTHOUGH the multi-milliondollar project is In pre-produc- tion stages now, the cast — to in-clude Gregory Peck and Lee Remick — won't report to theEnglish location until February.

Blades of gruss, to be created from supple plastic, will be approximately 30 feel high." John Gay's "Micronauts" screenplay has all nations work- ing together for a solution to a grim threat of starvation follow- ing an ecological disaster. It be- comes obvious that man must begin competing with insects and other sub-human species for the remaining food supply. "Our story is more science-fact than science-fiction," insists pro- ducer Saltzman,' who added, "Most scientists are now agreed that mankind's greatest threat is the alarming damage we are wreaking upon our environ- ment." Saltzman's director Don Sharp is currently seeing to the filming of two key sequences involving stag beetles and army ants on miniaturized sets — two-feet by two-feel — slated to be reproduc- ed in gigantic form on Shep- perton's sound stages. The 52-year-old Sharp first began his career as an actor in Australia, but after leaving Down Under he switched to screen writ- ing for Group Three Productions in England in 1951. He got his di- rectional start four years later doing children's documentaries, , before becoming a second-unit di- rector on TV and for feature films. His earlier directing chores, consisted mostly of horror movies such as "Curse of the " Fly" and "Face of Fu Manchu." Sharp is now receiving good no- tices for his newest release "Hennessy" with Remick and RodSteiger.

"Micronauts," he says, is a multi-million dollar production tentatively scheduled for release in the U.S. by American Interna- tional Pictures during Christmas1976. Carlile said the cameramen suffered a minor setback last week when an imported flock of ants were left overnight in a glass-enclosed set to become ac- climated before filming. "By morning, all of the grass and other greenery had been completely devoured by the hun- gry ants." Remick s g new kind of project. Peck has signed on for the battle of the bugs.
