It’s hard to believe that the last time we had a big-screen feature from Peter Jackson was his masterful take on the classic King Kong in 2005. Now, thankfully, mercifully, he’s back, this time as producer for what could be this summer’s biggest hit, the alien flick District 9.
So what can we look forward to in the coming months (and years) from Jackson? There’s the trailer for The Lovely Bones now available to watch/weep at on the Internet, and it’s hard not to have a little bias (heck, it’s atop our Must List) towards this winter’s highly anticipated adaptation of Alice Sebold’s cherished novel. However, the afterlife drama, starring Mark Wahlberg and Rachel Weisz, is hardly the only thing on writer/director/producer/Renaissance Man Peter Jackson’s agenda. He’s also teamed up with Steven Spielberg for the animated feature The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (expected to hit U.S. theaters in late 2011), based on the internationally beloved comic strip, featuring the voices of, Daniel Craig and Jamie Bell, among others. There’s also the Jackson-produced remake (possibly in 3-D!) of the 1955 British World War II film The Dam Busters and a little project you may have heard ofcalled The Hobbit (Jackson let us in on the progress of the movies at this year’s Comic-Con).
So, PopWatchers, which of Jackson’s forthcoming features are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the poll below, and don’t forget, for more behind-the-scenes scoop on this summer’s hottest flick, District 9, pick up this week’s EW!
