Sir Peter Jackson claims he was ghosted by the creators of the upcoming Lord of the Rings prequel series.
The 60-year-old director, who directed both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogy based on the works of JRR Tolkien, has revealed the team behind Amazon’s TV saga The Lord of the Rings: Ring of Power. I first contacted him about the possibility of joining the show I did, but after our initial conversation, he never heard from me again.
On The Hollywood Reporter’s podcast, “Awards Chatter,” he said: [writer-producer Fran Walsh] And I said, ‘That’s an impossible question to answer without looking at the script. “
However, the producers promised to send Peter and Fran a copy of the script once it was completed, but nothing came of it.
However, the award-winning filmmaker has “absolutely no complaints” about what happened and is looking forward to seeing the show hit the screens.
He said: “I see it. I am not the kind of man who desires malice.
“When someone makes a great film or TV show, it’s something to celebrate. One of the things I look forward to is actually seeing it as a completely neutral audience.”
Amazon Studios claims it “has an obligation to distinguish and distinguish the series” from Peter’s film and has “the greatest respect” for the director and his work.
In a statement, they said, “In pursuing the rights to our programming, we had a duty to keep the series distinct and separate from the films.
“We have the utmost respect for Peter Jackson and the Lord of the Rings films, and we are thrilled he is looking forward to seeing ‘Ring of Power’. .”
