It looks like Peter Jackson has set his eyes on his next big film project after he’s done with King Kong. Sorry to tell you folks (but not surprisingly), but it ain’t The Hobbit. The Hobbit will get made… but it could be another 5-7 years. Anyway, back on topic…
The good folks over at JoBlo report the following about Jackson’s next project:
Despite working overtime on his KING KONG remake, Peter Jackson isn’t planning on just sitting in a hot tub with two Brazilian strippers for the next couple of years. He’s planning on actually getting back to work. I’m telling you, that guy’s got his priorities all out of whack. The awesome site Kong is King recently got a scoop that Jackson’s next project will be a World War I epic about “The Anzacs”.
Hmmm… a WWI film sounds kinda fun. You don’t see many of those. Most of them usually revolve around WW2.
Personally I think Jackson needs to stay away from the Hobbit for a few good years to keep himself from being associated exclusively with middle-earth. Like I said though, The Hobbit will get done, but give Jackson a good 3-4 other projects to work on first.
