Super Ringer Spy Eriol discovered the “Live on Set” segment of the official site has been updated!
Cannot get that RealAudio clip? here is what is said:
PJ: Hi, I’m Peter Jackson from the set of Lord of the Rings at thelordoftherings.net.
Claire Raskind: Peter, where did you first read Lord of the Rings? Back in time for a moment..
PJ: I first read Lord of the Rings when I was 18 years old, I was actually travelling between Wellington and Auckland on a train, which took about 12 or 13 hours. I took the book with me to read and I only obviously got part of the way through it, and I finished it up while I was staying up in Auckland, and that was when I was 18. And I thought at the time ‘wow, this would make a great movie’ I was looking foreward to someone making the movie, and the animated film came out shortly after that, you know which I didn’t quite enjoy so much. I’ve sorta been a fan of the book, who’s been waiting to see somebody else’s film, that I ended up waiting so long that the concept for making the film myself finally sort of entered my head and here we are.
