Peter Jackson signs on to direct ‘Doctor Who’ episode…or does he?

Last month, Doctor Who showrunner, Steven Moffat, dared to re-open the endless ‘speculation’  that has been going on for several years now surrounding the possibility of Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies director, Sir Peter Jackson, directing an upcoming episode of Doctor Who, saying that Jackson was a “…genuine big old Doctor Who fan“.

Cumberbatch. Benedict Cumberbatch.

Seems like there isn’t a day that goes by that Sherlock star, Benedict Cumberbatch, isn’t linked to some upcoming role on the big screen.

From the Friday Vault: Hardware with Martin Freeman

Martin Freeman’s stock is going through the roof these days given his brilliant performance in Sherlock and, what I’m already assuming is brilliant in the upcoming Peter Jackson fantasy epic, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, as Bilbo Baggins. Many were ‘introduced’ to Martin back in 2001 as Tim in Ricky Gervais’ The Office. Post “Office, […]
