Lord of the Rings Director to film The Lovely Bones
The film director Peter Jackson, who won an Oscar for the final film in his Lord of the Rings trilogy has purchased the rights to The Lovely Bones, reports The BBC. The 2002 international bestseller by Alice Sebold is narrated by a girl who has been raped and murdered. The film is scheduled for release in 2007 and Jackson says he will produce it independently. "You have an experience when you read the book that is unlike any other. I don't want the tone or the mood to be different or lost in the film," said Jackson.
