Peter Jackson am Set

Jackson erzählt, dass es ihm sehr wichtig war, dass Mittelerde realistisch wirke. Es solle so aussehen, ob die Menschen, Elben und Hobbits da wirklich leben.

Überrascht hätten ihn immer wieder die Rollen-Interpretationen der Darsteller, die auch immer seine Vorstellungen noch etwas verbessert hätten. Am meisten begeistert zeigt sich Jackson von Viggo Mortensen. Mortensen hätte die Rolle des Waldläufers Aragorn perfekt ausgefüllt. Er sei sich nicht sicher, ob sich Viggo und Aragorn zum Ende der Dreharbeiten wieder getrennt hätten.

Einen weiteren interessanten Aspekt bringe die Rolle des Bösen ins Spiel. Der eigentliche Bösewicht des Films sei ja eigentlich nur ein kleiner goldener Ring. Es gibt keine feuerspeienden Drachen, keine mechanischen Roboter, keine Haie, nur so ein kleines Ding. Das Böse ist ein psychologischer Faktor. Und es sei besonders schwer psychologische Aspekte auf die Leinwand zu bringen, weil sie nicht greifbar sind.

Peter Jackson on Directing an Epic, His Hobbit Fantasies and the Real Villain of LOTR



Peter Jackson has made it.

He shepherded his Lord of the Rings cast and crew through a marathon 274-day shoot in the most remote parts of New Zealand, braving freak floods, runaway horses, mountain snowstorms, rumored budget blowouts, innumerable cups of coffee, rubber-clad casts of thousands and the curious eyes of millions of fans.

And he did it all in knee-length shorts and hiking boots.

Now, the laid-back 39-year-old director is embarking on the second phase of this massively ambitious undertaking. With filming wrapped, Jackson faces a long year of postproduction, editing, special-effects work and much more.

The native New Zealander has come a long way from his early movies, including the Muppets-on-acid flick Braindead (a cult classic) and the disturbing Heavenly Creatures (starring Kate Winslet, it garnered Jackson and partner Fran Walsh an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay).

After a turn with Michael J. Fox in The Frighteners, Jackson convinced New Line to let him make three LOTR movies simultaneously in a paint factory a million miles from Hollywood. All without getting a haircut.

We caught up with the bearded man, who inspires adoration from cast and crew on his $270 million LOTR project, as he makes the transition from mountaintop trailers to Wellington editing bays.

LOTR moves through so many different worlds and species. How do you tranlate that to the screen?
In the case of this film, I've got not just the screenplay to go on but Tolkien's books. They paint a very vivid picture of the characters and the environment they live in, which makes my job as a director much easier. I can shut my eyes and imagine the movie playing in my head, just as millions of readers around the world have shut their eyes and imagined all the events from the books playing like a movie. So, when you come to filming scenes, you feel you already know the characters, which gives you an incredible head start.
