Jackson still working on Dambusters script – official

At last, Peter Jackson has spoken publicly about the delay in starting work on the long awaited Dambusters remake, and revealed that he himself is the cause of the delay. In an interview he told journalists about his various on-going projects:

He said Dambusters, announced in 2006, would be made but was “waiting for me”.
“I need to polish a draft of the script, and I’ve been too busy. Fortunately, there’s no ticking clock, but that has meant that it’s been held up. I’ll get my draft done soon, and will get it, ahem, off the ground.”

He is a busy man – in the same interview he mentions that he’s still finishing The Lovely Bones, beefing up some chase sequences in Tintin no. 1, setting up Tintin no. 2 and co-writing The Hobbit. As a commenter on the NZ Dominion Post article says, he deserves to be knighted for his contribution to New Zealand film industry. Arise Sir Peter!

He said Dambusters, announced in 2006, would be made but was “waiting for me”.

    Since news spread in 2006 that Mr. Jackson was to remake the Dambusters I’ve been filled with both excitement and trepidation. For my sins, I’m a scriptwriter and a Barnes Wallis historian, and sincerely hope that Mr. Jackson doesn’t add any “Hollywood glitz” to a very powerful – and a very British – story.
    Can’t wait to see the finished product and cast a critical eye. . . .

    PeterJackson’s reputation speaks for itself. I have no doubt whatsoever that his remake will be as accurate as is possible, given the amazing technology available today.
