Washington: Lord Of The Rings director Peter Jackson has announced that he is going to make the movie based on Alice Sebold's critically acclaimed novel Lovely Bones.

According to IMDb, the director who won three Oscars this year, is in talks with producers to take over the project after director Lynne Ramsay walked out.

Sebold's tale centers around a 14-year-old girl who was raped and then murdered. Looking down from heaven, she narrates the story as she watches her family deal with her murder and try to heal itself. She also sees the detective trying to solve the case and observes her murderer as he goes on living his demented life. ANI
