According to the director, the Lord of the Rings of Power decided not to consult Peter Jackson in the end.
Return of the King, a Best Director Award for his final installment of the Lord of the Rings film trilogy, was at one time reported to be involved with Prime Video's serial adaptation in a advisory role, according to sources.
However, he has now told The Hollywood Reporter that show's producers never submitted any scripts to him.
'That's an impossible question to answer without seeing a script,' said the group. So they said, 'As soon as we get the first couple of scripts, we'll send them to you.'
"And the scripts never showed up." That's the last thing I heard, which is fine. No complaints whatsoever, he added.
Jackson (who directed a Beatles documentary last year) went on to explain why: "About four, five years ago, they asked if I would be interested in it. So I said, 'Have you got the scripts yet?' Because I know how difficult it was to compose the scripts for the films. I didn't know the people who wrote their scripts.
"They said, 'Oh no, we haven't received the scripts yet, but as soon as we do, we'll send you the scripts.' So I was waiting for the scripts to arrive, and they never did.
Amazon Studios issued this statement in response to his remarks. "We were required to keep the series separate and separate from the films. We have the greatest respect for Peter Jackson and the Lord of the Rings films and are delighted that he is looking forward to seeing The Rings of Power."
Despite rumors that the Rings of Power team has ghosted him, the loving filmmaker's personality shines through.
Jackson stated of the series that he would not like to wish him well. Filmmaking is tough enough. If someone produces a good film or television program, it's something to commemorate.
"I'm looking forward to seeing it as a perfectly neutral viewer," says the one thing I'm looking forward to.
From September 2, Amazon Prime Video will release Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.
