Peter Jackson To Direct Historical Fantasy, Temeraire

Peter Jackson To Direct Historical Fantasy, Temeraire
Peter Jackson's next blockbuster may not be "The Hobbit" but he stays firmly planted in the fantasy genre with "Temeraire" based upon the novels by Naomi Novik. Set in the time Napolean, the world is a vastly different place with an army of dragons piloted by aviators in the armies. 
 
According to Hollywood reporter: Jackson says "Temeraire is a terrific meld of two genres that I particularly love - fantasy and historical epic. I can't wait to see Napoleonic battles fought with a squadron of dragons. That's what I go to the movies for. As I was reading these books, I could see them coming to life in my mind's eye. These are beautifully written novels, not only fresh, original and fast-paced, but full of wonderful characters with real heart".
