Peter Jackson "still interested in Doctor Who"

http://insidetv.ew.com/2013/03/21/do...ek-matt-smith/

Peter Jackson has exclusively confirmed that he is still interested in directing an episode of Doctor Who. The Lord of the Rings filmmaker has also named his fee: a Dalek. The offer came in the course of Jackson’s appreciation of the British science fiction showthat appears in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.
Jackson is a diehard Who fan who has been watching the 50-year-old series almost since it began broadcasting and who first expressed his willingness to direct an episode last year. In the EW article, he reveals that he met current Who executive producer Steven Moffat over Christmas and assured him he wasn’t joking. “They don’t even have to pay me,” Jackson writes. “But I have got my eye on one of those nice new gold-colored Daleks. They must have a spare one (hint, hint).” Jackson already owns two used-on-the-show Daleks — the most famous of the Doctor Who monsters — which you can see in the photograph above.
When EW asked Moffat himself about the offer, the exec producer declined to comment on whether the Doctor Who budget could accommodate Jackson’s request. “You’d never get any information like that out of me!” Moffat said, tongue planted in cheek. Speaking more seriously, the exec producer claimed he was open to the idea of Jackson directing an episode of the show. “We’re theoretically on board for anything” he said “provided we’ve got a great story.”
It'll be split into three parts, three hours long each, etc etc

No, they've already announced who's directing the 50th-anniversary episode.

Plus, at the time that the anniversary episode is filming in April, Jackson will still be working on prep for the final shooting block of The Hobbit.

w00t! I'm all for this... and it'll only be an hour long.

The extended edition will be fourteen and a half.
