Peter Jackson planning novelisation of The Hobbit

ANDREW GORRIE/The Dominion Post Kiwi satire website The Civilian pokes some fun at Peter Jackson, envisioning a scenario where the three Hobbit screenwriters plan to novelise the three Hobbit films.

 

AWARD-WINNING New Zealand director Peter Jackson has said he’s considering a novel adaptation of his popular film trilogy The Hobbit.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first film in the series, was released late last year to widespread popularity, grossing more than $1,000,000,000 worldwide at the box office. That success has inspired Jackson – who was reportedly “captivated” by his story – to make it available in other mediums.

“Fran and I were talking about it when we were writing the screenplay together” said Jackson, referring to co-producer Fran Walsh. “And there were several points where we just thought to ourselves ‘Wow, I really feel like this could be a book.’”

Jackson says he’s taking the project very seriously, and revealed that he’d already been in talks with several popular authors, including J.K Rowling, Lee Child, Dan Brown and Stephenie Meyer.
