It turns out Peter Jackson got to do some actual filming on Mortal Engines, in addition to serving as the movie’s cowriter and producer. Jackson planned to direct Mortal Engines once upon a time and began developing the film back in the late 2000s with his writing partners Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens. The project was then put on hold while Jackson went off to direct The Hobbit movies and wasn’t formally revived until 2016, by which point Jackson had handed Mortal Engines off to Christian Rivers to helm instead.
While Jackson is directing a WWI documentary to commemorate 100 years having passed since the end of the war, he has yet to announced what his fictional narrative follow-up to The Hobbit trilogy will be. It’s possible that Jackson will finally direct the second Tintin movie that he and Steven Spielberg (who helmed the first Adventures of Tintin) has been wanting to make for years now, but nothing has been confirmed on that front yet. Similarly, it’s been reported that Jackson could serve as a producer on Amazon’s in-development Lord of the Rings TV show – assuming he’s ready to make the journey back to Middle-earth once again.
