Holy s**t, please let this happen! Nothing is officially set up yet, but there is interest from both sides. Matt Smith said in a recent interview:
"Let's get Peter Jackson to direct one and go and make it in New Zealand. I would love to, I will campaign endlessly to come over and film there."
And Peter Jackson thinks that's a good idea too.
"I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, and I think Matt's fantastic. Just name a time and place, and I'll be there!"
What kind of episode do you think Jackson would direct?
Sure, a bunch of other cool things were said at The Hobbit panel, but a highlight was hearing Gollum curse. You can watch the full panel, or skip to 22:40 if you just want to hear that part.
