Jackson picks unknown for Lovely Bones

PeterJackson.jpgAccording to a rumour online an unknown has been cast in the lead role of Peter Jackson's latest film Lovely Bones. The film is the adaptation of the novel The Lovely Bones (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com), and sees a young girl who was raped and murdered watching events after her death from beyond the grave.

The girl who is set to lead the film is reported to be Saoirse Ronan, who is already IMDB listed. She will play the fourteen year old Susie Salmon who watches from Heaven as her family grieve, and her killer is hunted down by a sad detective. Rachel Weisz and Ryan Gosling are already on the film.

The story comes from WENN through Starpulse News Blog, and isn't that surprising that Peter Jackson has headed out for an unknown for the part.

Everything about The Lovely Bones story is intriguing, not least the departure from Jackson's normal fare with this tale. I'm curious to see how he portrays the other world for the girl, and how he addresses some of the more harrowing moments of the story.
