Peter Jackson planning novelisation of The Hobbit
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.Posted in Fool, Fran Walsh, Hobbit Movie, Peter Jackson, The Hobbit on March 23, 2013 by Demosthenes
