Peter Jackson Signs Deal with Microsoft

Filmmaker Peter Jackson has been signed up by computer giant Microsoft to create an Xbox game.

The director–celebrated for his digital wizardry in giant ape film King Kong–will produce a series based on the Halo video-game franchise, but admits he’s still not sure how it will work.

He says, “Technology is at a point where we can blend a lot of film storytelling with interactive entertainment.

“We are right on the threshold of a new way of telling stories… (but we still need to) work out how to do it.”

The announcement was made at a convention in Barcelona, Spain, yesterday.
