Jackson Hatches Dragon Fable

September 12, 2006 at 12:11 pm by xoanon  - 

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Peter Jackson is eyeing his next fantasy series. The filmmaker has optioned “Temeraire,” a historical fantasy series by first-time novelist Naomi Novik, as he puts the pieces together for his career post-“King Kong.”

The “Temeraire” saga reimagines the world of the Napoleonic Wars with the addition of an air force of dragons and valiant aviators. It centres on British naval Capt. Will Laurence, who captures a French ship, where he discovers an unhatched dragon egg in the hold — a gift from the Emperor of China intended for Napoleon. When the egg hatches, he is forced to give up his naval career to become captain of the dragon he names Temeraire. [More]
