As if writing two film scripts for The Hobbit with Guillermo del Toro, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, and collaborating with Steven Spielberg on the 3D Tin Tin films weren’t enough to keep Peter Jackson busy, he’s unveiled his plan for King Kong 360 3D. It will relaunch this summer as a signature attraction on the Universal Studios Hollywood studio tour.
On The Hobbit front, I’m told that both scripts are in, that discussions are underway right now to determine if they’ll shoot in 3D. (I think it’s inevitable). They will set everything in place in a New Zealand powwow next month, and then casting will begin for a November start. As for the King Kong attraction that’s based on Jackson’s 2005 film, he’ll tell you himself.
