Sometimes movies can make millions of dollars. Other times, they can save lives. Peter Jackson knows a little bit about each of these as director of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and producer of West of Memphis, a documentary about the lives of three wrongly convicted (and now freed) Arkansas youths, The West Memphis Three.
He talked to E! News at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah this week about his two latest passion projects, West of Memphis and The Hobbit.
