‘The Lovely Bones’ delayed
Production on Peter Jackson‘s The Lovely Bones reportedly shut down at one stage due to a clash between the director and the art department.
Jackson argued with the art department, headed by Jules Cook and Chris Shriver, over how to portray heaven in the film.
An adaptation of Alice Sebold‘s novel, The Lovely Bones focuses on a teenage girl who is murdered and watches from heaven as her family comes to terms with her death.
The Wellington crew allegedly took a break from working on the film while Jackson smoothed over the creative differences with the art department.
The Lovely Bones was hit by problems early on during the shoot when Ryan Gosling pulled out of the movie and was replaced by Mark Wahlberg.
