In the latest development in the will-he-won’t-he direct an episode of Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit director Peter Jackson has confessed that he’s happy to work for very little payment – just one gold Dalek…
While shooting rumours (which contradict the official line of production taking place in April) suggest that Peter Jackson has missed the boat for the 50th anniversary (unless he was speaking from a hotel room in Cardiff…), with Entertainment Weekly being a print publication, he could have been speaking a few weeks ago.
It seems that not only was Jackson being honest in his previously expressed interest in directing, but that’s he’s also met with Steven Moffat to confirm it. Most intriguing, however, is Peter Jackson’s modest payment requirements.
They don’t even have to pay me. I have got my eye on one of those nice new gold-coloured Daleks. They must have a spare one!
If that’s all he wants, Steven Moffat should already be finding a companion Hobbit to travel to Mordor with in order to shake the rings of Peter Jackson’s fingers, quite frankly. The Grand Moff is, as ever, not giving anything away…
You’d never get any information like that out of me!
We’re theoretically on board for anything… provided we’ve got a great story.
Surely every Doctor Who is a great story though Steven?
