Follow Elijah Updates on Twitter

August 15, 2020

The Leo Awards (film and television production in British Columbia) went past me in the last update, but Come to Daddy was nominated for three awards. It was in the running for Best Motion Picture, and picked up the honors for Costume Design and Male Supporting Performance. You can read more about the awards at their site.

:: Lately, the only new things coming from Elijah during these times are his Cameo videos. Here are three that I found enjoyable. Elijah and Sean tag team, a fan's reaction to a birthday greeting and Elijah's interaction with a fan.

:: Last update there was a pitch for Fellowship of the Ring. Now it's time to pitch The Two Towers.

:: Finally, since this pandemic has stifled so much in the entertainment industry, which has led to limited appearances and news, the updates (now called recaps) will occur once a month. This will continue until we beat this beast and things revert back to some normalcy.

That's all... for now.


July 31, 2020

With many, if not all movie productions shut down, SpectreVision's next film for 2021, Archenemy, is chugging along in post production and have released a teaser trailer.

:: Star Wars Resistance has picked up an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Children's Program. As you know, Elijah voiced Jace Ruckin in the animated series.

:: Elijah took a photo and posted a familiar license plate to Twitter. Later, the owner of the car interacted with the man in the reflection to which Elijah replied, "It's yours! Amazing! I'd passed you once before and nearly followed you. Haha" It would be something to find out that Elijah Wood was trailing you.

:: Here's a podcast where The Trust is discussed for the first half hour. It's raunchy and very tangential... like enthusiastic, tipsy, movie fans would talk. It's actually a podcast dedicated to Nicolas Cage called, Cage's Kiss.

:: Screen Rant posted this pretty funny video. What would the pitch for The Fellowship of the Ring be like?

That's all... for now.

I don't know what's harder to take. Being swamped by too much happening with Elijah or scraping the little juicy bits that's out there. Since I can't control what's going on in the world, I'll have to opt for the latter... again.

:: Did you catch Elijah in The Princess Bride homemade retelling on Quibi? Overall, the entire piece was fun to watch and it looks like all involved had a good time recreating the story. Elijah appears for just a few moments as Prince Humperdinck in Chapter 7, The Pit of Despair, along with fellow LOTR actor, Andy Serkis in their scene shot many, many miles apart. Here's an even more brief portion of it.

:: IndieWire conducted an all too familiar home video interview with Elijah which is a wonderful account of what's on Elijah mind and on his plate in this 38 minute conversation.

:: I came across this pretty fascinating article about Maniac examining which version of the film is better. Check out Revenge of the Remakes.

That's all... for now.


June 28, 2020

As early as April, it was rumored that Elijah was to begin filming a new movie just as lock-downs were taking place. While still unknown, I posted about the film and Elijah's part in it. Recently, that film, No Man of God was offically confirmed by its writer, Robert Cargill, a close friend of Elijah's. He tweeted, "We've been friends for a lot of years and I'm over the moon that I finally get to make something with him." No word yet on when filming may start.

:: Beginning Monday, June 29, Quibi will show a "homemade" reenactment of The Princess Bride in which Elijah has a part in. Before you get upset, this is not deemed as another Hollywood remake, but the story being played out by over 40 actors around their homes with makeshift sets, costumes and props shot during the quarantine, which will be a unique watch. We all have played out our favorite films from time to time, but with this one, funds will go to charity. Check out Vanity Fair to get all the details and see a few clips which are hilarious.

:: Elijah is still sending out his Cameo greetings. This lovely one for Father's Day, and why not get Elijah to promote your product?

:: There have been some old interviews being posted to YouTube. There's a press junket in 1994 for The War and in 1996 for Flipper.

:: Thanks to Dyadpro for posting these photos of Elijah getting back into his hobbit ears for the AT&T commercial. [1] [2]

:: Most know by now that we recently lost a great actor, Sir Ian Holm. The veteran of stage and screen, big and small, passed away June 19th at the age 88. Not quite as old as Bilbo, but for a human, it's a long and accomplished life. Elijah tweeted, Farewell, uncle and Peter Jackson posted a couple of image of himself with Elijah and Ian who is off on another adventure. [1] [2]

That's all... for now.


June 13, 2020

Recently, Elijah had a very personal and candid conversation with his two buddies, Eric Vespe and Scott Wampler, about the screen version of Stephen King's Misery, and how fans can occasionally cross the line. In The Kingcast podcast, the trio covers many other things while diving into one of our favorite films.

:: Since he announced it a couple of weeks ago, Elijah has been busy on Cameo sending heartfelt greetings to people. Here are a few that he's done. [Video 1] [Video 2] [Video 3] [Video 4] [Video 5] and this one being my favorite. Graphic Design... YES!

:: Other Lord of the Rings cast-mates on Cameo are Sean Astin, Dominic Monaghan and John Nobel.

:: If you missed it or just want to see it again and again, The Lord of the Rings cast on Reunited Apart is on YouTube.

That's all... for now.


May 29, 2020

If you haven't heard the amazing news this week, a wondrous event is taking place this Sunday, May 31st. A majority of the main cast of The Lord of the Rings will be together for a Zoom chat, and all of us Ringers' heads are about to explode! Check out this teaser video and this photo of all who will be there.

:: I'm thrilled they're doing this chat for us because of the conventions that had to be canceled or postponed. Sadly, Fan Expo Dallas has joined Calgary Expo and MegaCon Orlando and have decided to put off their conventions until next year. This leaves FanExpo Canada for late August where Elijah, Sean, Billy and Dom are still scheduled.

:: Though these are very strange times, it tends to bring out the best in people. But honestly, when isn't Elijah at his best? He has now joined Cameo. If you don't know what this is, persons of recognition are hired to send a personal message to someone or even yourself. There is a price to pay, but how cool it would be to have Elijah greet someone who needs a serious pick-me-up or wish them a happy birthday? Check him out!

:: If you didn't catch it, the slightly edited Animal Talking video is up on YouTube.

:: Elijah and Dom popped out of their home caves for a safe and social distancing photo.

:: Covid-19 shut down many things including movie and television filming. Elijah would have been in Toronto working on his next project called, No Man of God. Officials in the city hope to have some productions start up in July, but it's still a wait and see affair. While we do wait, a premise of the film was given. "No Man of God with Elijah Wood as a member of the new '80s era FBI Behavior Analysis Unit at the same time Ted Bundy was on death row." Sounds rather intriguing. We'll see if they can safely start shooting soon.

That's all... for now.


May 16, 2020

Some restrictions relating to Covid 19 are easing up and even though we can't actually see Elijah, at least we can virtually hang out with him in the video gaming world. (bringing your attention to the inset image) The craze of Animal Crossing has taken over and Elijah is faithfully playing to whittle the time away.

:: In the last update, I noted that Elijah's visit to an island while playing Animal Crossing caught viral heat from Entertainment Weekly, CNN and everything in between. The game has become so popular, he was a guest on an actual late night talk show created by Gary Whitta where the game is played while the interview takes place. If this is totally foreign to you, check out Elijah's pre-talkshow chat from last week.

:: A couple of days ago, Elijah came back for the live show called, Animal Talking, which can be seen on Twitch. As of this posting, an edited version has not been uploaded to YouTube (it's 2.5 hours long), but keep an eye on Gary's channel for it to show up. I watched it all and it was an absolute delight.

:: There's an outstanding interview that Samuel Barnett participated in. He discussed all things Dirk Gently on the podcast Soda and Telecast. An intro and the interview begins at 14:55. Don't miss it!

:: Behold this incredible Warhol inspired fan art from Romina. She's been doing what we all have. Being creative and having some fun.

:: Finally, a game of "What The?" I came across a movie poster on Instagram from actress Ally Holmes that names Elijah as one of the main actors in a pre-production film called, X The End Time and Ms. Holmes stated the movie will be shot in Turkey. There's another poster as well, but while reviewing the lineup of actors on IMDb and their own site, his name is nowhere to be found. Does this seem like something.... else to you?

That's all... for now.
