Taika Waititi Reveals What We Do in the Shadows Set Was Built Using Stolen Hobbit Material

Taika Waititi has revealed the source of the green and wooden screens in What We Do in the Shadow: they were stolen from the set of the second Hobbit movie. Both films were filmed in New Zealand and were released within a year of each other, in 2013 and 2014 respectively.

“When I did What We Do in the Shadows, when Jemaine [Clement, the movie’s co-director, co-writer, and star] and I was shooting that, we didn’t have a lot of money to make that movie, and The Hobbit had just finished,” Waititi said in The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (opens in a new tab). “And so our production designer, man, I don’t know if I should say this. Okay, but I will: our production designer, in the dead of night, took his team to The Hobbit studios and stole We dismantled all of it, tore down green screens and took all the wood, and built a house.”
