PETER JACKSON TO PRODUCE 'MORTAL ENGINES' SF SAGA MOVIE ADAPTATION! JACK O'CONNELL TO PLAY FASHION DESIGNER ALEXANDER MCQUEEN!

PETER JACKSON TO PRODUCE
'MORTAL ENGINES' ADAPTATION
Good news and bad news, people, Peter Jackson is returning to movie making with his Hobbit and Lord of the Rings team Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, with whom he will produce the big screen adaptation of Philip Reeve's epic novels MORTAL ENGINES, bad news - they're writing the script as well and they might make it as deadly boring as them Hobbitses were! Peter's visual effects expert Christian Rivers will direct!
MORTAL ENGINES is set in a world many thousands of years in the future. Earth's cities now roam the globe on huge wheels, devouring each other in a struggle for ever diminishing resources. On one of these massive Traction Cities, Tom Natsworthy has an unexpected encounter with a mysterious young woman from the Outlands who will change the course of his life forever.

JACK O'CONNELL TO LEAD
ALEXANDER MCQUEEN BIOPIC
There definitely is a resemblance: as news come from  Pathé production company, young Brit Jack O'Connell is set to take the lead role in their untitled biopic of scandalous fashion designer ALEXANDER MCQUEEN! Based on late designer's biography Blood Beneath the Skin by Andrew Wilson the movie will be directed by Andrew Haigh! Back in year 2009 McQueen organized one of his greatest shows which featured a reworking of his greatest designs from the past 15 years! It was dedicated to his mother whose death triggered his depression and suicide. The film explores McQueen’s creative process in the months leading up to the show providing an intimate portrait of the man behind the global brand – a moving celebration of a visionary genius whose designs transcended fashion to become art.

  3. I haven't read Mortal Engines- but it sounds like things could turn out not so great (both in the future and the adaptation).

  5. I've never actually heard of Mortal Engines but the concept sounds awesome. I might need to steal that idea for a DnD game. haha

  8. All of Peter Jackson's movies suck for one reason only: he just doesn't know when to stop. A good editor could easily turn his fetish for his own shots into more enjoyable movies. There. I said it.
