Take a first look at Peter Jackson’s long awaited “The Lovely Bones”

Empire have nabbed the first photo for Peter Jackson’s adaptation of the acclaimed novel “The Lovely Bones”.

Based on Alice Sebold’s book, the film follows Susie (played by Irish gal Saoirse Ronan) a 14 year-old girl raped and murdered by her neighbour. From heaven, she watches her family deal (or not) with her death, and watches her murderer as he tries to hide the evidence.

The long delayed adaptation stars Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, Michael Imperioli and Saoirse Ronan and is expected to hit theatres later this year. Check out the first look “Lovely Bones” below:
