Peter Jackson interview

Peter Jackson was interviewed tonight on Campbell Live and spoke about The Lovely Bones, which I have no intention of seeing--or reading. I was more interested in his other films.

He talked about The Hobbit and how someone took a copy of script to Ian McKellen, who read it and liked it, and the copy was promptly destroyed (not that the plot is exactly a secret). He said that he'd like to get Cate Blanchett and Hugo Weaving back to play Galadriel and Elrond.

And then they asked him about The Dam Busters. Filming starts next year and Jackson has ten Lancaster bomber--yes, ten of those big babies--in a warehouse. I'm looking forward to both of these films.
