While we're waiting for the inevitable 'Making of LOTR' docos.....

Called 'The Distant Location,' the pitch for it goes: "When Hollywood comes to NZ for all the wrong reasons, the locals and Mother Nature exact a hilarious revenge."
Well, well, well. We'd love to know how it's release will be timed against the first 'Rings' film. Meanwhile, for anyone wanting to read a good comedy on a similar subject, I'd recommend Terry Bisson's "Voyage to the Red Planet," which could be subtitled 'When Hollywood goes to Mars for all the wrong reasons....."etc. I kept being reminded of the LOTR film project.
