It had no place being in the film
To mark the 20th anniversary of The Fellowship of the Ring, the film’s cast and producers 对...说 独立 for a retrospective, which sheds new light on the blockbuster.
One such revelation is that Bob Weinstein, who co-produced the film alongside his brother (the disgraced producer Harvey), wanted Jackson to kill off three Hobbits in the film.
It’s unknown which of the Hobbits would have died had Jackson been forced to include this in the finished film, but fortunately, the suggestion was thrown out.
Ken Kamins, Jackson’s manager, revealed the news in the retrospective, also stating that Harvey would “threaten to get Quentin Tarantino to direct if Peter couldn’t do it in one film that was two-and-a-half-hours”.
Kamins said this “was the exact opposite of what he initially told us he wanted”.
