I would personally address this to PJ and Ask him if he could consider a Live Action Assasins Creed movie.

Surely [In reply to] Can't Post

it would have to be the Silmarillion.

I have to admit that the last time I tried tackling that book, I only got 1/3 of the way through.

I'd like to see a film that gave me an overall idea of all the book.

Especially if it came out in three parts... give me something to look forward to.

I will go there ... and back again.

Very unlikely [In reply to] Can't Post

But I can highly recommend the audio book if you're having trouble with the paper version. The version I have was read by Martin Shaw IIRC.

Silmarillion is unlikely [In reply to] Can't Post

A remake of The Lord of the Rings. Tongue

The stories from the Silmarillion will probably never be turned into films. The Children of Húrin and the later events in the Akallabêth would make excellent movies, though they would be quite dark and serious (there are no hobbits in them for comic relief and such). A few years ago someone from Norway created a draft for a script of a 'Westernesse' movie, which was quite compelling. How could a movie about Sauron bringing about the fall of Númenor not be awesome?! But alas, I guess it won't happen. Maybe if technology advances further, fans will one day pull it off quite nicely. Or maybe the Tolkien Estate will come to their senses.

That would be incredible. [In reply to] Can't Post

I would love a film not connected to either stories of LotR or The Hobbit that tackles a different part of ME. Maybe something from the The Silmarillion, or something from Unfinished Tales, or a film created from the known histories of ME, that deals with ancient societies, or the Numenorians of Arnor, or a story about the ancient wars, or even something where they would have more creative license, like something taking place in Morgoth or far east where the blue wizards and Saruman once ventured.

Temeraire [In reply to] Can't Post

Personally I hope PJ makes the first novel into a film (because I want to see Temeraire on the big screen) and then produces the rest of the series (which becomes quite episodic) for TV. A similar strategy is being used for The Dark Tower. There's a possibility PJ may want to read all the books (I reckon they'll be finished by 2016) to determine the shape of the show ie. how much of the books should each season cover.

Of course, PJ will probably complete the Tintin trilogy with Spielberg. I presume Spielberg will direct the second film as PJ's busy with The Hobbit, but regardless PJ is the one overseeing the post-production. And then there's that hilarious pitch Stephen Fry (screenwriter of The Dambusters remake) mentioned of Nazi Zombies trying to prevent the birth of Christ.

He hasn't done anything of his own creation since The Frighteners, and now that he has all of these big budget adaptation blockbusters behind him, it'd be nice for him to let loose his vision on something new and captivating.

Speaking of The Dark Tower [In reply to] Can't Post

I would like it very much if a more suitable director than Ron Howard were found to direct the second and/or third films. Peter Jackson would be a fine choice.

... which will be followed by another Tintin movie. [In reply to] Can't Post

PJ and Steven Spielberg plan to co-direct and co-produce the third Tintin film. (Spielberg directed the first and will produce the second; PJ produced the first and will direct the second.) Of course, it's possible that PJ might squeeze another film or two between Tintin 2 and Tintin 3; they delayed Tintin 2 for him, so they might be willing to do the same for Tintin 3.

Assassin's Creed film? No thanks. [In reply to] Can't Post

Videogames should never be adapted to film. There is simply no reason. A well-made game can convey its story every bit as effectively as a film version would – there is nothing to be gained by stripping it of its interactivity. Yes, I'm sure someone like Peter Jackson would make a good Assassin's Creed film, but ultimately it would be no more than a non-interactive retread of the game – I'm sure he can find better ways to spend his time.

I would prefer other directors to tackle The Silmarillion [In reply to] Can't Post

In 2013 we will have perhaps eighteen or twenty hours of Middle-earth as interpreted by Peter Jackson. I think that's plenty. I would like to see other directors' interpretation of Tolkien's work. The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales contain a wealth of material suitable for adaptation – there's room for half a dozen films there; easily. Peter Jackson isn't the only good director in the world.

Would they be that good? Would they have the same passion? Would they have the same interest? The same ability to bring people together and fill them with enthusiasm for the project?

Who said anything about changing the entire team? [In reply to] Can't Post

For the answer to your other questions, take a look at the period between April 2008 and May 2010 – the span in which Guillermo del Toro was signed to direct The Hobbit, with Peter Jackson serving as co-writer and executive producer.

Remember, PJ wasn't go to direct The Hobbit [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm all for PJ and Weta being involved in a Silmarillion adaptation to some degree and that's probably how he'd like it. The fact of the matter is, Tolkien's family won't sell the rights to The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales or any useful tangent in HoM-E, for a long long time.

In any case, back on topic, PJ is working on Tintin, that is the fact. And after 2013 he'll have a well-deserved holiday before making another film.

Agreed [In reply to] Can't Post

Look at what happened to Doom when it was made into a movie. There were some good actors in it, but they suffered for a plot that just didn't give you much of a chance to care about what was going on.
