While you were busy stuffing your face this Thanksgiving weekend, Peter Jackson was in New Zealand whipping multiple fandoms into frenzies.
On his Facebook page, the "Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" director posted a very cheeky video, with his daughter reading off his work e-mails while he polished his Oscars. (You know every winner does this every weekend. They must.) She said he got an e-mail from Steven Moffat, asking if he'll direct an episode of "Doctor Who"'; and while PJ was busy insulting Moffat's scripts, in walked another Peter, Peter Capaldi:
"I'm the Doctor."
Nice. The whole video is pretty clever, and includes a nod to "The Walking Dead" in the end, but what was the objective? Not only does it renew hopes that Peter Jackson, a "Doctor Who" fan, will direct an episode, no one missed that bookmarked copy of "The Silmarillion" on the director's desk:
What does THAT mean?! Most likely ... not much. As The Verge noted, that collection of stories was edited and published by J.R.R. Tolkien's son, Christopher, who is not a fan of the movies, and the rights are still held by the Tolkien family. So, as Peter has noted himself, it's unlikely that a movie will be made from "The Silmarillion" anytime soon.
What do you think this video means -- other than Peter maybe directing a "Doctor Who" episode -- and can you believe his daughter is all grown up now? Where did the time go?
