Peter Jackson’s favorite Lord of the Rings scene wasn’t created by him

The Lord of the Rings trilogy director Peter Jackson has revealed that his favorite scenes in the three films have not been written or directed by him: IndieWire. As reported by (via Pendent), Jackson was talking to Stephen Colbert and was asked to pick his favorite scene. There are many iconic choices, but it wasn’t the Helm Gorge, not Sam, who helped Frodo climb Mount Doom, but in Gollum’s monologue, he was talking to himself as a two-tower smear-gol. It was.“We were filming the’Two Towers’, which introduced Gollum,” said Jackson. “The important thing about Gollum is that most people know he’s a smear gollum and he’s a gollum. It’s like a split. But I didn’t really come up with a scene …” There are two of these guys. ” So we knew we needed it, but we didn’t have time to shoot it. “

Jackson was busy with other productions at the time and asked his co-writer and co-producer Fran Walsh to create this scene where the two halves of Gollum interact. Walsh not only wrote the scene, he continued to direct.

“Fran wrote a scene where Sam and Frodo are sleeping, so they can just be a lump in bed. We don’t even have to have Elijah. [Wood] And Sean [Astin]”Jackson said. “We didn’t have anyone to direct it, so I said to Fran,” You wrote it, you should shoot it. ” So she went in for a day and wrote and directed a scene that is now quite famous. “
