PETER JACKSON SPEAKS OUT ON HARVEY WEINSTEIN: Peter Jackson won 11 Oscars for the third installment of Lord of the Rings, but he says that disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein was never satisfied with his work, and in fact wanted to take the franchise away from him and give it to Quentin Tarantino. "What we got was a real bully, a very unpleasant experience," Jackson tells The Independent. "Purely because they had this mafia thuggery, and that’s no exaggeration. We ultimately left them and were happy to leave them. Me and Fran Walsh, Jackson’s wife and co-writer promised never to work with them again. I haven’t spoken with Harvey for 20 years." He also opened up about what he thinks Weinstein, who has been accused of assaulting 80+ women, deserves: "It’s up to the courts and the justice system to find out what’s true. If he’s done anything like what he’s been accused of justice should be brought, it’s black and white for me."
