Former New Line Cinema excutive Michael DeLuca.
Here is a brief excerpt:
A. How closely did you want Jackson to stay to the actual text? Did he do this?
A. We left how close to stay to the text up to Jackson, since he had already written incredibly faithful scripts as far as following the books.
Q. Did you feel, when PJ brought the projects to you, that they would be a success?
A. I have no doubt that the films will stun and delight and be successful. Peter’s in that genuis category of director where you’re talking about someone who can create whole worlds onscreen, like Ridley Scott, James Cameron, and Tim Burton.
