Peter Jackson has one film he wants to see this Christmas and it is not King Kong. Jackson wants a ticket to the $NZ210 million adaptation of C S Lewis' children's story The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, according to its Kiwi director Andrew Adamson. Adamson said this week he was regularly in contact with Jackson. "He emailed me the other day and said it is the film he was looking forward to seeing over Christmas." Adamson returned the compliment, saying he had made a point of seeing the preview for Jackson's latest blockbuster and would be off to the movie. [More]
