Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson is one of the top directors in Hollywood, having helmed some of the highest grossing movies around. Peter has previously admitted that he is a bit of a Doctor Who geek and a massive fan of the show.
Now, Peter Jackson has hinted that he could easily be persuaded to direct an episode of Doctor Who, even suggesting that they would not have to pay him for his efforts, instead giving him one of the gold Daleks.
Jackson was talking to Entertainment Weekly, when he touched on the possibility of directing a Doctor Who episode, "They don't even have to pay me. I have got my eye on one of those nice new gold-coloured Daleks. They must have a spare one!" he explained.
Doctor Who is set to celebrate its 50th anniversary in November but, before then, we have the rest of the latest season to get out of the way. Doctor Who will return to BBC One, with the second half of the current season, on Saturday, March 30.
As for Peter Jackson, he will be hoping to see his next film, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, follow in the footsteps of his previous movie, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and pass the $1bn mark.
