We are having some spots shot on 35mm soon.
I am having all the footage scanned and put on a hard
drive. The SD edit will be done from Digital Beta.

My question is what is the best file format and what resolution
is the most cost effective to eventually go to 1080p?
Since this is not destined for a film out is it ok to just scan
at around 1920x1080...or should it be higher?

Sorry I don't have much more information about film stock
or who is doing the telecine at this time.

The usual post route would be something like:

shoot 35mm, then TK via Spirit to HD-CAM. Then do a down convert from HD-CAM to DigiBeta for your off-line. Lastly, conform and final grade at on-line from your HD-CAM masters.

You mention having your film 'scanned' rather than just telecined. As you're not going to a Filmout, this is unnecessary.
