Peter Jackson, a fantastic director, best known for The Lord of the Rings trilogy, is co-writing a series of films based on the books by Phillip Reeve. And as for the starring actors...

Remember Rob Sheehan?

You may remember him as the plucky Laois lad who starred in Love/Hate and Misfits way back when. Remember when he used to look like this?

Isn't he handsome.

Well, the talented chap has just been cast in, superstar director, Peter Jackson's adaptation of Philip Reeve’s Mortal Engines, which will be written and produced by Jackson himself.

Sheehan has been cast as a main role, alongside fellow Irish actor Ronan Raftery, who just recently starred in the Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, so you know he's going to be good. 

Filming is due to begin in New Zealand this spring time and the film due for release in December 2018.
