, director of King Kong and executive producer on the Halo film considers next-generation consoles as excellent means for those in the film industry to provide real support to game makers.
"I definitely see improved graphics and sound as continuously positive attributes for consideration
among the Hollywood community," Jackson declared. "Actors will look more 'life-like' in HD and the sound continues to get closer to the theatrical movie experience - this makes it easier to provide sound effects, artwork, and talent when you, as a filmmaker, know that the final game will be a strong representation of the film."
Jackson declined to confirm suggestions that there will be a sequel to Ubisoft's
King Kong game, but said, "I have been in discussions with Michel Ancel and the Montpellier team, but there is nothing to share at this point in time".
The Oscar-winning director of the Lord of the Rings trilogy also described his relationship with Ubisoft: "I was really busy working on the film, and they were equally as busy working on the game, so I didn't need to provide too much day-to-day input. [...] This model of development worked, so if I have a similar project, I'd have to evaluate and see if this same process would be applicable."
