The gap between the de The Lord of the Rings and that of The Hobbit was an unpleasant surprise for fans who had loved the epic atmosphere of the first three films made by Peter Jackson: according to one of the actors involved, however, the fault of the flop would not be attributable to the director.
It was talking about it Jed Brophy, interpreter of Nori in the second trilogy signed by Jackson: according to the actor, in fact, Warner Bros. would have interfered too much in the production, coming to negatively influence the work done by the director.
"The studios they got in the way. I may be talking too much right now, but I think Warner Bros. got somewhere between Peter Jackson and The Hobbit. The thing is, none of them can read a script and figure out how you want to make the best movie out of it. So if you get in the way you end up with interrupt the creative flow someone's, and I think that's what happened. If you have people dictating what to do you end up getting stuck"Brophy explained.
The making of the film, actually, was not a walk: it even seems that Ian McKellen burst into tears on the set of The Hobbit because of too many shooting in front of the green screen; to find out more, here is our review of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
