Lord of the Rings to get remade?

by on Apr.01, 2004, under Movies

The Phantom Poster writes: “Could the Lord of he Rings get remade already? Rumors have David Lynch (Twin Peaks) wanting a shot at it. “If they can remake my Dune epic, why can’t I remake someone else’s? And Jackson is even doing the 534th version of King Kong.” And since no one in Hollyweird can come up with new ideas – remaking movies over and over, adapting comic books, sequel after sequel – why not just remake the same blockbuster movie every year?” Hmmm…The Rock as Aragorn, Paul Williams as a Hobbit (no camera tricks needed!)…what would be your fantasy fun casting?

    David Lynch casting

    More like Aragorn: Kyle MacLachlan, Eowyn: Laura Dern, Saruman: Jack Nance, Galadriel: Isabella Rossellini, Gandalf: Dean Stockwell, Grima Wormtongue: Brad Dourif, Arwen: Sherilyn Fenn!

    Are you sure this isn’t an Aprils fool joke? 🙂

      Hobbits wearing red velvet suits and talking backwards? The Ent-Lady? Damn fine Old Toby!

    Jack and Patrick?

    somehow i keep seeing jack palance as boromir and patrick stewart as elrond… of course they could cast tom cruise in that role and rename him elrond hubbard.

    My CHOICE!

    I’d have Kylie Minogue as Arwen, Jason Donovan as Aragorn, Don Davis (Stargate SG-1) as Gandalf and Christopher Judge as Saruman.

    I’d have Wil Wheaton play Frodo though.

      Also, Galadriel would be Monica Bellucci. Sabrina Impacciatore could play Arwen too instead of Kylie.
