Peter and I share a passion for WWl history,” said Warner Bros Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich. “Watching this documentary was a moving, emotional experience and will remind viewers of the bravery and sacrifice of these soldiers and their contributions to freedom. Peter has created a powerful, immersive film that will touch people and we’re proud to partner with him to bring this film to audiences around the world.

They Shall Not Grow Old is produced by Jackson with Clare Olssen. It was edited by Jabez Olssen (The Hobbit trilogy). Jackson’s WingNut Films produces with House Productions executive producing. The film is commissioned by 14-18 NOW and Imperial War Museums in association with the BBC and Executive Produced by House Productions. The documentary combines original footage from Imperial War Museums’ film archive along with audio provided by the BBC archives. The video footage has been both colorized and converted into 3D, and the voices of actual veterans combined with archival footage to bring the reality of WWI front-and-center like never before.

Jeff Goldstein, president of domestic distribution for Warner Bros. Pictures, said, “With this being the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, I can’t imagine a more appropriate time to honor the courage of the soldiers who fought in WWI — what was then ‘the war to end all wars’ — many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice. Peter has made history come alive through the medium of film, and we are so pleased to be a part of bringing his vision to today’s audiences.”

Jackson is a bonafide WWI aficionado, having previously curated a Great War museum exhibition in New Zealand, as well as directing the 2008 short narrative film Crossing the Line about two young soldiers preparing for battle in WWI.
