The Lord of the Rings

With courage-and Cate Blanchett, Liv Tyler, Ian Holm, and Ian McKellen-Peter Jackson takes on the Tolkien trilogy

Almost as scary as the thought of trying to film the entirty of J.R.R. Tolkien's massive Lord of the Rings trilogy -- Think of it as War and Pease with elves and lichen -- is recalling Hollywood's brief 1980s fondness for Tolkien lite. Remember Labyrinth? Willow? Legend (which featured Tom Cruise in what will surely be the tweeest role of his career)? And then there was Ralph Bakshi's dismal animated Lord of the Rings (1978), which barely clattered its way through hald the saga. So here's to nervy co-writer and director Peter Jackson (Heavenly Creatures), who is currently in the midst of a 14 month long trudge, shooting The Lord of the Rings in his native New Zealand. The plan, following Tolkien, is to release three separate films, possibly in a Christmas-summer-Christmas pattern beginning with the 2001 holiday seasbn. Digital technology will allow Jackson to protray clashing armies of hobbits, dwarfs, elves, and other creatures without having to resort to foam rubber or sock puppets. He also benifits from a cast that includes Elijah Wood as hero hobbit Frodo Baggins, Ian Holm as his cousin Bilbo, Ian McKellen as the wizard Gandalf, Cate Blanchett as elf queen Galadriel, and Liv Tyler as Arwen, an elf warrior. New Line Cinema, the studio backing this venture, no doubt hopes the presence of two actresses will reassure audiences that not everyone in the film will have splayed, hairy feet. --Bruce Handy
