RINGS CAPS JACKSON'S CARERR
- RINGS CAPS JACKSON'S CAREER
Peter Jackson, director of the upcoming Lord of the Rings film trilogy,
TV Guide Online that helming the movies was the highlight of his career.
"This is a giant undertaking," Jackson told the site. "But I consider
personal film. It's my film of a lifetime. I read [J.R.R. Tolkien's]
when I was 18 years old and thought then, 'I can't wait 'til the movie
out.' Twenty years later, no one had done it--so I got impatient."
Jackson is deep in post-production on the three films. He added that Liv
Tyler was the perfect choice to play the Elf Arwen. "She had to depict
most perfect woman in the world," he said. "You couldn't really look
Liv." The first Rings film, The Fellowship of the Ring, opens Dec. 19.
