They were supposed to be the ones doing it. Peter Jackson's studio (WETA) did all the effects, and Neil B (can't remember his last name) was the original director announced for the series (picked by Jackson).
But Fox pulled out at the last minute, and the project went into limbo. At this point they've said that all the parties have moved on, and if it gets resurrected (which a script based on THE FALL OF REACH is being shopped around) it will be a new group. Who knows though... Peter Jackson could still do the effects.
