Peter Jackson spoke to The Hollywood Reporter and mentioned that the “Hobbit” production “stands ready to help in any way we can” in devastating aftermath.
In a statement to THR, Jackson mentioned that “everyone involved in the production of The Hobbit is shocked and saddened by the earthquake and it’s devastating aftermath.” Naturally, there are several of the films actors and crew who come from Christchurch and The Hobbit Director mentions that “we are doing all we can to support them.”
Furthermore, according to Jackson, the production has been in contact with the NZ Government “to offer practical assistance and stands ready to help in any way we can…Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Christchurch and all those affected by this terrible tragedy.”
A spokeswoman at Weta Workshop declared that the crew are offering support to those affected by donations to the Earthquake Relief Fund. Clothing was being sent into Wellington tonight. “Of course all affected in Canterbury are in our thoughts and we wish we could do more,’ she said.
