Re: Peter Jackson to direct an episode of Dr Who

Never mind directing, make him the next showrunner!

Well, it would be the next-best thing to PJ and his posse doing a Who movie trilogy.

Re: Peter Jackson to direct an episode of Dr Who

How's this for an outside bet - find the extra money to let Jackson direct a feature length 50th anniversary special, which can be released in cinemas in some territories (like the UNCLE movies of the 60s, and the opening episodes of the 70s Buck Rogers and Galactica).

Realistically speaking unless whoever shows it in NZ chips in to cover some of the costs it's not going to happen.

But... Peter Jackson does own one of Sylvester McCoy's old costumes so he could just make a DW Fan Film instead!

Re: Peter Jackson to direct an episode of Dr Who

Yeah the cost is really going to be prohibitive. Dubai was costly enough. Spain/Croatia is one thing, not that far away for starters, but to take the entire production crew to New Zealand?

Then again I guess they managed New York.

You can get there in six hours, though. And BBC America covered a lot of the costs.

Re: Peter Jackson to direct an episode of Dr Who

^Fair points.

I think the only way to do it would be, as some have suggested, to do a two parter that gets some kind of theatrical release. But then that poses its own problems!

Or you hire local people. Isn't that possible?

Re: Peter Jackson to direct an episode of Dr Who

Jackson and McCoy are already there, and they have a full crew too. They could film some McCoy scenes for the 50th Anniversary, and simply pay into The Hobbit budget to make use of their actor and equipment for a few scenes

Jackson will get the script. Film more than is needed.

Decide later to split it into three episodes and release them three seasons apart.

And make 3 billion dollars somehow.

He will manage to make three episodes out of the script for one ;-)
