It seems that Peter Jackson is finally finished with Middle Earth, and I know that there’s many, including myself, who will be breathing a sigh of relief. Even Jackson recently admitted that he “winged it” with his Hobbit trilogy and felt he “he wasn’t on top of it”, a brave but probably true thing to say. Jackson is next going to be working for Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment. Said Spieleberg, interviewed by Tim Out:

 “Peter was so busy with The Hobbit that it took him away from Tintin and he’s doing another film for my company now. It’s a secret, nobody knows about it. Then after that he’ll do Tintin.

“The sequel is called Prisoners of the Sun. We already have a screenplay, Peter’s the director and I’m the producer. We made a deal to do three Tintin movies together. I would direct the first one, Peter would do the second one and then we’d have a director we can’t announce yet lined up for the third one.”

No details are known of the still-secret project that will precede the next Tintin installment, though a spokesman for Jackson has said that the Oscar-winning filmmaker will be happy to discuss it “at the right time”. I personally think that Jackson needs a smaller, more low key film to recharge his batteries….but considering that Spielberg is involved it’s obviously not going to be a sequel to Brain Dead. More’s the pity.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
