Peter Jackson didn't just help fund the cause of the West Memphis Three, he's now hosting Damien Echols of the now-freed trio at his home in New Zealand. "We're doing investigative work, we're doing forensic work," Jackson said Friday at a press conference. He and partner Fran Walsh have been funding legal efforts for the three Americans, who were convicted as teens. During the conference, Jackson also announced that the world premiere for 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' will -- not surprisingly -- take place in Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand.
