It would appear that Peter Jackson and Andy Serkis are pairing up again, at least when it comes to the Mortal Engines panel during New York Comic-Con (NYCC) next week.
It was announced this morning that Serkis will be moderating the panel all about Christian Rivers‘ upcoming film, as well as a world premiere of the first 8 minutes of the flick.
Jackson, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, and Rivers will be joined by the film’s stars, Hera Hilmar, Robert Sheehan, Stephen Lang, Leila George and Jihae in a panel moderated by Serkis.
While chatting with Deadline, Serkis said:
“I’ve always found the moderators of these panels to be very good when I’ve been part of them at Comic Con, but we just thought it would give it a slightly different vibe if it was someone in the family. Andy knows me and Christian and Philippa and Fran very well. He’s not involved in the film, so the movie’s fresh for him, but he understands the process, and how we make these films. We thought his questions might be more focused on his understanding of how we do things, rather than a moderator who comes in cold and doesn’t know a thing.
To be reunited with my dear friends and long standing collaborators, Peter, Fran, Philippa and Christian, to celebrate the arrival of their feverishly anticipated, behemoth piece of character driven, world building magic…is beyond thrilling.”
New York Comic-Con takes place October 4th-7th 2018. Mortal Engines is set to open on December 14th, 2018.
