News for Sep. 24, 1999
From 'Filmunlimited -UK'
The appearance of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy has been confirmed, according to a Film Unlimited source.
The husband and wife team are to be introduced at the end of the first film, The Fellowship of the Ring, and will assume lead roles in the second, The Return of the King, which is being shot immediately afterwards. It will be the first time they've worked together since marrying in May 1998, and they will be the Middle Earth trilogy's highest-profile stars.
The same source suggests that Terence Stamp - most recently seen as Chancellor Valorum in The Phantom Menace - is soon to be announced as a late addition to the Lord of the Rings company. No news on which part Stamp will occupy, although it's thought to be nasty, not cuddly.
It is to be noted that TheOneRing.net did place another call to Ethan's camp yesterday, the word then was 'unconfirmed'.
More coming soon!
