Los Angeles: Filmmaker Peter Jackson has released the first look of "Mortal Engines". The director, behind the "Hobbit" and "Lord of the Rings" trilogies, takes on the producer's role with Fran Walsh on the upcoming film based on Philip Reeve's young adult science- fiction book series.
The world of Mortal Engines, part of a quartet of novels, takes place in the distant future where mobile cities scour the earth for smaller towns to dismantle and strip for parts. No other information was shared with the picture, but the character dons a red scarf, seemingly indicating the mysterious young Outlander woman named Hester Shaw, who arrives in Traction City and changes the life of the protagonist, Tom Natsworthy.
To be directed by Christian Rivers, the movie stars Hugo Weaving, Stephen Lang, Hera Hilmar, and Robert Sheehan. "Mortal Engines" is scheduled for release on December 14, 2018.
