Jackson's Engines

Dec. 22, 2009by: Paul Tassi

The newspaper of the hometown of Peter Jackson’s Wingnut Films claims they’ve discovered what Jackson’s next film project will be, and no, the HALO movie isn’t coming back to life.

But it is a bit of sci-fi, as Jackson is reportedly looking to adapt Philip Reeve’s MORTAL ENGINES quadrilogy, which is a series of books that chronicles a post-apocalyptic steampunk future where cities fly around the earth and fight each other for fuel.

It’s unclear as of yet as to whether Jackson would direct or just produce, and though his rep declined comment, no denials were issued, as it’s well known that Jackson has had the option to these books for some time.

Sounds cool to me, I’m all for a little Steampunk mixed with some blockbuster fare. Still wish this was HALO instead though.

post-apocalyptic steampunk future?!

With Peter Jakcson and Weta?! Oh yeah. Much more interesting than any of those other projects.

So lovely bones pulled an avatar, looked great but didn't have any real meat to the story.

Bones

Lovely Bones went so wrong for two reasons. First is that Jackson depended too much on visual effects, which are quite stunning, over the story. Secondly the story wasn't all that great to begin with. The book was good, but not as good as it is made out to be.
