Famed filmmaker Peter Jackson is trying to sell his pitch titled "The Lovely Bones" to film studios.
Seems going out of the radar following the dispute occurred between him and New Line Cinema's Bob Shaye, Peter Jackson is now being reported to shop around his latest pitch of "The Lovely Bones" for a partnership in developing the project.
Adapted from Alice Sebold's best-selling novel of the same title, the film concerns a young girl tracing steps back through her own murder and is likely to be a more low-key effort for the filmmaker compared to "Lord of The Rings" trilogy and "King Kong." Its script was written by Jackson himself alongside partners Philippa Boyens and Fran Walsh.
Jackson, a native of Pukerua Bay, North Island, New Zealand, initially built his professional path in film industry after successfully sold the rights of his first feature film "Bad Taste" to twelve countries. He came to his career highlight when being named best director at the 2003 Academy Awards for "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of The King."
