Description

A unique and personal account of the six-year quest to film the Lord of the Rings, with revealing insights into the award-winning director's life and films, including the forthcoming King Kong. this authorised biography of Peter Jackson tells the inside story of how a New Zealander became Hollywood's hottest property - from early schlock horror and puppet films, through Oscar-winning success with Heavenly Creatures, an abandoned King Kong remake, to the making of the Lord of the Rings - ditched two years into pre-production, rejected by most studios, then picked up by New Line Cinema in the biggest gamble in film history. Jackson tells how he managed to achieve the almost impossible: filming three movies back-to-back with a cast of thousands. He reveals the highs and lows, from over-zealous script doctors and accountants to on-set tantrums and disastrous early screenings. this illustrated book also gives a unique insight into the filming of King Kong, Jackson's lifelong dream project, for which he finally secured one of the most lucrative deals for any film director ever.
