I have heard that Saruman is going to be cut out of Return of the King and that Christopher Lee is pissed about it. Is it true?

If it is, then Peter Jackson is either getting full of himself, or he is relying too much on the DvD format: So we cut it out, we will put it back in for DvD.

I think the Saruman character should be resolved. The films should be edited so all three can be watched without resorting to the DVD for vital background info and other resolutions.

well if this is true then a lot of main parts will be cut out...

we already know the battle of the hobbits is cut out. and if sauramn is cut out then his death at the end will also be cut out.

Watch what you say.  I don't think those kinds of comments are necessary.

Yup, I saw Christopher Lee being interviewed a few days ago and he sure is pissed off !!!!!!! I think what made it worse is that they didn't even have the decency to tell him in person.........I think he only found out when one of his friends read it on the net.  I'd be pretty darn annoyed as well if I was him.

Bah! You really need that part of the story...it went to show exactly how far the evil of everything that had happened had extended, and that even the innocent people in the Shire weren't safe from everything that Sauron and Saruman had planned...it also set the "putting everything right" that you also needed at the end, and cutting it out is a bit of a blunder...

They have room to add in an so much, but they can't keep in something that vital? huh.gif They can't possible claim there isn't something dull and needless they could leave out for the special edition instead, surely?

What I don't get is that why is it that Arwen is on the poster and not Eowyn. I mean, Eowyn is going to be facing the Nazgul king in one on one combat, whereas Arwen....sitting on her butt in elaborate gowns yearning for Aragorn?

The last time I checked, the rumour was that Durnhelm was going to be Arwen instead of Eowyn...I don't know if they kept that in. They were also going to have Arwen turn up and fight at Helm's deep, but cut it out at the last minute because as soon as the rumour went out, there was such massive outcry from the fans.

Good thing too...I saw some of the early shooting of that, and damn but that woman didn't know one end of a sword from another blink.gif

They might just have taken her out of the Pelenor fields too...I hope they have to be honest. There is a limit to how far they can move away from the books...I accept some of the changes they made (leaving out Tom Bombadil for example, which was also done in the BBC radio version, I was very happy with...I hated that part of the book), but all the same...they're changing quite a few very important details that might just mess up a little of it for the fans of the books.

No, it is Arwen. There is this poster here in New York heralding the Return of the King, on it are Frodo, Samwise, Gandalf, Strider, Gollum, and Arwyn.

Liv Tyler must have a photo of Peter Jackson in a compromising position with some form of animal because she barely does anything in the films and yet she has third billing, over Viggo Mortenson, who is fast becoming the main focus of the story.

Well...in fairness, he was the main focus of the third book tongue.gif

The focus they're giving Arywn though is just plain silly...she was a minor character in the books...I think she appeared in person...*ponders*...once, right at the end tongue.gif

I remember in the books feeling really sorry for Eyown because she loved Arigorn, but he didn't return it...she was out there on the front willing to die alongside him, and he only had eyes for this pampered elf princess, who's dad wouldn't let her marry anyone who wasn't king of the entire western world (rich girl's gotta have shopping money I guess) tongue.gif

The movies kinda put that to flight...I dunno what Eyown's supposed to be now huh.gif Arigorn's bit on the side by the looks of it wacko.gif
