ABOUT THE FILMMAKERS: PETER JACKSON (Director/Producer/Screenwriter) is one of the world's most successful filmmakers. His monumental achievement was “The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy, which he directed, as well as co-wrote and produced together with fellow Academy Award® winners and frequent collaborators Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens. Collectively, the films earned a total of 30 Academy Award® nominations, winning 17 Academy Awards®, including Best Picture for the final film. Jackson and Walsh had received their first Oscar® nomination for Best Original Screenplay for their acclaimed film “Heavenly Creatures.” Jackson, through his New Zealand-based WingNut Films banner, also was responsible for the globally successful 2005 remake of “King Kong,” which earned over $500 million worldwide and three Academy Awards®. Jackson more recently directed the Academy Award®-nominated “The Lovely Bones,” an adaptation of the acclaimed best-selling novel by Alice Sebold, and produced the global sensation “District 9,” which received an Academy Award® nomination for Best Picture. Jackson also produced, with Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, “The Adventures of Tintin,” which was directed by Spielberg. The film won, amongst many other awards and nominations, the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature and the Producers Guild of America Award for Animated Motion Picture Producers of the Year. The movie is the first of three, based on the world-renowned comic book series by Hergé, and Jackson will direct the second film in the trilogy. In 2010, he received a knighthood for his services to film. *** PETER JACKSON (Réalisateur/producteur/scénariste) est l’un des cinéastes les plus populaires du monde.

Peter Jackson et Fran Walsh avaient décroché leur première nomination aux Oscars® dans la catégorie du meilleur scénario original pour « Créatures célestes », film acclamé par la critique. L’on doit également au metteur en scène et à sa société de production néo-zélandaise, WingNut Films, le succès mondial du remake de « King Kong » en 2005, qui a rapporté plus de 500 millions de dollars et trois Oscars®.
