It looks like everyone wants a shot at the madman with a box lately. In the last week or so both Peter Jackson, director of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, and Rian Johnson director of the soon-to-be-released Looper have expressed interest in directing episodes of Doctor Who.
Peter Jackson revealed his enthusiasm for the show in response to a Waikato Times interview with Matt Smith. “I’m a huge Doctor Who fan, and I think Matt’s fantastic. Just name a time and place, and I’ll be there!”
Rian Johnson, on the other hand, threw his hat in the ring in an “Ask Me Anything” chat on Reddit. When asked by a fan what TV show he’d most like to direct, Johnson answered, “I’d love to do a Game of Thrones. But what I’d really kill to try, although it would be terrifying because I’m such a big fan of it? Doctor Who.”
I’d love to see either of these happen. Who would be your choice?
