Peter Jackson is turning his hand to an air force of dragons, manned by crews of aviators.
TÃ©mÃ©raire, a historical fantasy book series that sees squadrons of dragons fighting in the Napoleonic wars. The plot centres on British naval captain Will Laurence, who seizes a French ship and discovers an unhatched dragon egg - a gift from the emperor of China to Napoleon. When the egg hatches, he is forced to become the dragon's keeper. The monster is called TÃ©mÃ©raire (meaning "Daring" in French).
"TÃ©mÃ©raire is a terrific meld of two genres that I particularly love - fantasy and historical epic," Jackson told The Hollywood Reporter. "I can't wait to see Napoleonic battles fought with a squadron of dragons. That's what I go to the movies for."
Its Jackson though so however duff it sounds it will be undoubtedly great entertainment and lets not forget it will be 120 mins of the french being duffed up .
