LATEST PETER JACKSON INTERVIEW
Now that its offical that Peter Jackson is working on a remake of the classic King Kong, news and interview have been starting to surface more rapidly. Here's an interview with Peter Jackson regarding the film....
Stuff.co reports, 'Jackson said the Wellington-based production would provide between 1500 and 2000 jobs and make a significant contribution to the local economy. Most of the King Kong crew would be New Zealanders, though Jackson was required by Universal to hire international actors for most of the bigger roles, says the trade.'
'Two-thirds of the film is set on the mysterious Skull Island - which is supposed to be somewhere near Sumatra in the story - so location scouts would be looking for a jungle-type location and beaches around the country.'
'The New York set for the last act of the movie would be shot in Wellington because filming in New York would be too expensive and too difficult to get the right 1930s look, Jackson added.'
'We will build somewhere in the Wellington area. We'll just find some flat land and build a big back block set of New York streets and then use our computers to extend the buildings, make the streets longer and the buildings higher. It may just be a field somewhere on someone's farmland.'
'King Kong and all the dinosaurs will be computer-generated and as real as the wretched Gollum in The Two Towers.'
