Peter Jackson is going to be producing and writing the script for a film adaptation of Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve (aka one of my favourite books of all time!)! It’s going to have tonnes of Lord of the Rings people working on it (well… four named) and it’s going to be brilliant! Think about it: a dystopian, sci-fi, steampunk book to be adapted into a film by WingNut Films with Peter Jackson producing alongside LOTR veterans! Yeah. I actually squealed (quietly (kind of (I hope!))) when I read it on theonering.net. I’m just so happy. There’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which comes out in TWENTY-THREE DAYS (no, I’m not counting—why do you ask?) and which may be a trilogy or maybe more, and now there’s this! That’s enough new films to keep me happy for like the next decade at least if they also adapt the other three books in the series. And there’s three prequels!
