Peter Jackson Adapting Mortal Engines ?


New Zealand’s The Dominion Post is reporting that Peter Jackson may be adapting Philip Reeve’s fantasy novels “Mortal Engines” for the big screen.

The newspaper says that Weta Workshops is believed to be working on designs for the science fiction series, which features giant mobile cities.

A spokesman for Jackson did not deny the project was on the books yesterday, but said “any comment should come from Peter”.

The books are set in a post-apocalyptic world where cities have become giant vehicles and must consume each other to survive. “Mortal Engines” is the first book in the series.
