Peter Jackson has been working fairly hard on two different Tolkien trilogies. Between the 10-year gap of The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy, Jackson has only been able to do a couple of other projects (King Kong, The Lovely Bones). Now, after his latest trilogy is done, he plans on moving to smaller projects and focusing on more intimate stories.
Jackson told the New Zealand Herald that, "We have got a few bits and pieces that we are working on, Fran and I, the things that we are most excited about are some New Zealand stories."
He continued, "We just want to step off the Hollywood blockbuster thing for a while and we've had a few New Zealand stories in line for a while that we think would make great films."
According to Empire, Jackson had already made commitments to other films such as the Tintin sequel, which he planned on directing, and a couple more book adaptations. But based on what Jackson said, it looks like those projects may be handed off to someone else or left to sit on Jackson's to-do list for a while.
