She worked with Jackson and Walsh again, co-writing the films "King Kong," starring Naomi Watts and Adrien Brody, and "The Lovely Bones," with Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci. Boyens, Jackson, and Walsh added "Pan's Labyrinth" director Guillermo del Toro to their team for "The Hobbit Part 1" and "The Hobbit Part 2."
