Peter Jackson can't take time off

Dec 27 2012, 10:20am CST | by

Sir Peter Jackson didn't sleep while filming 'The Hobbit' trilogy.

The Oscar-winning director has admitted he doesn't take time off during the filmmaking process and struggles to catch any sleep since he is so committed to living up to everyone's expectations.

He joked: ''When do I sleep? To me you have a responsibility to an audience and the studio who are giving you a lot of money and a responsibility to yourself and your childhood dreams so sleeping seems like something you should do much later on. So I always feel a little bit guilty.

''I find it hard to take days off when I'm working on a movie, because I do have a family. You do feel that you should be spending that time making the best movie you possibly can!''

The 'King Kong' director is still incredulous he has gone from a lonely boy experimenting with filming to a successful director with a creative team surrounding him who can bring J.R.R. Tolkien's magical world to life.

He told BANG Showbiz: ''I grew up with my mum and dad's Super 8 movie making spaceships out of cardboard and making little rubber monsters. The fact that I am doing what I'm doing today is not just because it's just a profession or a job, it's a hobby, and I'm not just by myself anymore as only child.

''I've got the most incredible family around me of skilled artists who help me so anything that I'm imagining in my head, they have the skills and the technology to be able to make it for the film. There's really no barrier anymore, anything is possible with the right people to help you.''

Hey, Rian Johnson: Hulk Want Star Wars Role!

Sep 11 2014 12:34pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

While the concept of the actual Hulk with Jedi powers is completely terrifying, the kind and (relatively) docile man that portrays Bruce Banner might not be so bad. Mark Ruffalo recently admitted to sending an e-mail to Episode VIII and IX writer/director Rian Johnson, whom he worked with previously on The Brother’s Bloom, asking for a role in the upcoming films: My e-mail to Rian after all these years was: “Rian, congratulations on everything you’ve been doing. And by the way, if the ...

‘Shazam’ Movie Not Connected to ‘Justice League’ Shared Universe?

Sep 3 2014 4:37pm CDT | Source: screen rant

DC’s Shazam movie is happening – but even as we today confirmed that Dwayne “The Rock Johnson” is playing Black Adam, the film’s villain, there have been other details surrounding the project that are raising a few questions. One noticeable anomaly is that the film is being produced by New Line Cinema – the subsidiary of Warner Bros. Pictures that has housed films like Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies. While Warner Bros. has partnered with ...

Learn The Running Time Of Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG Extended Cut!!

Aug 5 2014 11:50am CDT | Source: aintitcool

And when you can see it... Read the full article on AICN An interesting thing happens when Peter Jackson adds footage to his already plus-sized LORD OF THE RINGS / HOBBIT movies: their pacing seems to improve.  And, instead of feeling awkward or clunky (as is often the case when helmers push additional material into films to which we’ve already become familiar), said material usually results in a more well-rounded, ‘whole’ experience.   A trend one can only hope will continue with t ...
