Mortal Engines Synopsis

Following the conclusion of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies, three-time Academy Award(r)-winning filmmakers Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh return to the screen with a startling and sweeping new vision of a future where Earth's cities now roam the globe on huge wheels, battling each other in a struggle for ever-diminishing resources.

This is the world of Mortal Engines, the story of how two unlikely heroes come together and change the course of the future. Universal Pictures and MRC's epic adaptation of the award-winning book series from Philip Reeve, published in 2001 by Scholastic, Mortal Engines is directed by Oscar(r)-winning visual-effects pioneer Christian Rivers (King Kong).

Jackson and Walsh co-wrote the screenplay with their fellow Oscar(r)-winning collaborator, Mortal Engines executive producer Philippa Boyens, with whom they crafted The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies. Zane Weiner (The Hobbit series), Amanda Walker (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) and Deborah Forte (Goosebumps) also produce, while Ken Kamins (The Hobbit series) joins Boyens as executive producer. Universal will distribute the film worldwide.
