ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the hopes and future plans of the director of the movie "Lord of the Rings," Peter Jackson. Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens are indisputably different people, but it is tempting sometimes to think of them as three voices in one person's head. "Lord of the Rings," trilogy won 17 Oscars, grossed nearly $3 billion worldwide and made Jackson a superstar director, even as he apologized for looking like a hobbit. Jackson has wanted to remake "King Kong," since he was 13 years of age ,the 1933 original, with the luminous Fay Wray, is so close to his heart that it could not be removed without life-threatening surgery. INSET: The Kong and I.
