Like Tom Bombadil, and the bit in FOTR where Frodo dances on the table in the Parncing Pony - I'd love to see Elijah doing that...
Ahhhh...you are so right, Maryd! Those would have been great scenes!

I would have loved it if they had been in there...but I guess you can't have everyhing, and if it were remade with those scenes then something else would be left out...

I don't think so, the movies are classics now. So, why to do a remake? But they can add scenes thru CGI images of the characters. Those scenes will be: The Hobbits encounter with Tom Bombadil and one of the most important part of the book that has been left out in the last movie: The Scouring of the Shire.

I forgot about the Scoruing of the Shire...but even so, PJ should be let loose on the special effects, not some other person that wants to remake the whole trilogy.

I think I'm probably going round in circles and repeating myself a little bit here, but I do think these are well-known films and I can't see them ever being remade, it just wouldn't be right.

Actually I disagree, I don't think the films will be remade recently and possibly not in my life time but I can see the possibilty of the films being remade in say 50 years time. Tolkein's vision is such a classic that someone may want to remake it to his/her own vision for a future generation.

Nothing stops making one again, but I don't think it's needed. The trilogy that has been made has already reached the classic status, and I don't think that anything can take it away (even that New Line Cinema has been acting silly ).

Fans are still happy with how it was done some years back. Some years - and it still does'nt feel old!

I know what you mean, Lorienel, I don't think Peter Jacksons version will ever look old or dated, and I still don't think there would ever be a need to remake LOTR, but like Julie says, maybe in 50 years. You never know.

Ladies,

Please try to be constructive when you post. Just saying you agree or disagree with someone is not considered constructive. If you have nothing to say or nothing useful to add to the discussion, please don't post.

I'm posting this message in this thread, but this counts for the whole board. We've seen too many threads ending up in ordinary chats over the past weeks and this has to stop. There is a general chat thread in the Random Clubs, go chat there.

Thank you!

I found an interesting thing out off our hobbiton tour guide (I know he knows his stuff) he said that Peter Jackson has enough footage from the three films to release all three again without showing any of the same scenes.and they would be around 5 hours each one.

And that they did film the scouring of the shire but it was left out the movie for some reason (only shown in the mirror) this is why Christopher Lee was annoyed with Peter. Because he should have been killed there and they cut that death scene out and replaced it with the one at Isengard.

I have always said that I wanted to see EVERY SINGLE INCH OF FOOTAGE they made, and I do! I'd love to see a big version. I don't care if the movies are 10 hours each!

But I really don't think we need a remake any time soon, and I don't think we'll get one. ANything that comes out too quickly will be inevitably compared to Pj's version, if someone else does it. I think NL has realized that they can't make a success of anything LOTR without PJ...finally. And frankly, I don't think PJ would redo it.

Now, if you mean a re-edit, that's a different ballgame. I can see that, as long as the franchise remains profitable. But a remake? I don't see it.

Hugs,
Rach

I could never imagine another actor as Frodo besides Elijah, or another Sam besides Sean Astin, or another Gandalf besides Ian McKellen or another Aragorn besides Viggo Mortensen, or Pippin and Merry besides Billy Boyd, and Dom Monaghan, and so on. It's the same with Star Wars, I can't imagine people playing Luke and Leia besides Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, or Anakin or Obi-Wan besides Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregor/Alec Guinness, or another Palpatine besides Ian McDiarmid, etc. In such epic films, it seems like those actors were meant for those roles, and it wouldn't be as moving and powerful with other people playing the characters.

They did'nt pick the actors just because they were superstars and well known. They picked the actors that seemed to be talented enough for the role, were they already famous or not. If they were'nt sure about the choice of actor, they would still think about the other choices, even to the very last point. And now the actors have become superstars, and they really have earned it.

Their intention was to make their own film, not a film with Hollywood label. And to be honest, I don't even want to think about LotR trilogy with a Hollywood label...

I totally agree with you Lorienel. The cast was chosen based on their talent and the characters they were playing. And its success was mainly due to the great casting.

I wouldn´t like a remake. In fact, I wouldn´t watch it. The movies are perfect the way they are. And Frodo will always have Elijah´s face for me.

Same here. I started to read the books only a bit before I went to see the movies, as my picture of Frodo had'nt totally formed in my mind yet. Then I saw Elijah as Frodo and I thought: "Perfect".
