Rock Star Hobbit?

2/13/00, 12:36 EST - Xoanon

From: John Shade

I thought I'd drop you a line with a blurb from an article I read yesterday. In the recent Spin Magazine (with Fiona Apple on the cover) there is an article about the Langston brothers who form the group Spacehog. Royston Langston is dating Liv Tyler (Arwen) right now and in the article he mentions the fact that she is currently in New Zealand filming The Lord of the Rings and joked about seeing if she could get him a role as a hobbit in a band.

Just as long as he takes the earrings out first :)

Four Months and Counting...

2/11/00, 09:19 EST - Xoanon

Well today, February the 11th marks the fourth month of filming the 'Lord of the Rings' Epic down in New Zealand. What has been shot so far? Well, and most of this is speculation, we think all the Bree shots are done, inside and out. In fact I've heard that the Bree set has been taken down. We know, thanks to Tehanu's set visit, about Hobbiton, and the scenes being filmed there. We also know alot about Helms Deep and the quarry sets. There has been the death of Boromir and supposedly a scene on a boat, which can be the breaking of the Fellowship.

All in all things are coming together, we've got 14 more months to go, and I bet things are only going to get more amazing and exciting right up until they dim those lights and we read 'New Line Cinema Proudly Presents...'

Media Watch: Sydney Morning Herald

2/10/00, 15:07 EST - Xoanon

From: Resevoir Dog

There is a large article on Cate Blanchett (Galadriel) in this mornings Sydney Morning Herald. The bit about LOTR says;

"Of course, you have to wake up and say, 'I'm here now in a position where maybe I can set things in motion.' If someone had, a year ago, said, 'You'll be in Lord of The Rings,' I would have said, 'What?' But then Peter Jackson gets involved and you think 'How wonderful!'"
