After luring legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg with the prospect of a Blackhawk movie, it looks like Warner Bros. and DC Films have now set their sights on another A-list director in Peter Jackson.
According to TheOneRing.net, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit filmmaker is weighing up whether to take another trip to Middle-earth for Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series, or tackle an a mystery DC project.
Decisions are being made by Peter Jackson and his NZ crew:

Amazon recently acquired the rights to J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings and is reportedly developing a five-season prequel show with a whopping budget of $1 billion. Recent reports have suggested that Jackson could well take on an executive producer credit on the series, and has been in talks with Amazon about his potential involvement. This is however the first time that Jackson’s name has been linked to a DC project, and – much like Spielberg – he would certainly be a coup for DC Films.
