Hey folks, Harry here and I'm wondering... is Peter Jackson going to direct the remake of DAMBUSTERS, as I thought he was only going to be producing it. He definitely has the mad passion to do it, having made new Lancaster Bombers for the film. Which is just kinda amazing. But the great news is that Stephen Fry is writing the screenplay, how cool is that?
Harry, Last night I attended a charity event with Stephen Fry, in which he was interviewed on stage about his life, friends (such as Hugh Laurie – when he Stephen was recently in LA shooting bones, he was in the lot opposite the House lot, and they had lunch together for a catch up) and ongoing/future projects. One of the more interesting movie tip-bits that he let slip was that he confirmed that the Peter Jackson DamBusters remake was in pre-production, with Stephen writing the screen play. He also commented that Peter had already created the Lancaster Bombers in New Zealand ready for shooting to begin. No dates were mentioned. Regards Jaffa
