‘The Hunt for Gollum’ LOTR Movie Already Exists



'The Hunt for Gollum' LOTR Movie Already Exists

If Warner Bros.’ newly introduced The Lord of the Rings film thought The Hunt for Gollum sounded a bit like fan fiction, that’s as a result of it already is.

There’s a 2009 fan-made movie titled The Hunt for Gollum you could watch under. The movie, directed by Chris Bouchard, is reasonably bold. The Hunt for Gollum spans 39 minutes and has acquired loads of reward from followers upon its launch.

Following WB’s announcement, the movie was taken offline for a lot of hours and YouTube put up a discover saying Warner Bros. had filed a copyright declare in opposition to the fan film and blocked it. LOTR followers reacted fairly negatively to the takedown on-line and, early Friday, the movie was restored to YouTube.

A studio supply says the takedown request was finished in error.

The quick tells presumably the identical story that’s going to be tackled within the upcoming characteristic movie, which is being developed by producer Peter Jackson and his writing companions Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, who “shall be concerned each step of the best way.” Andy Serkis is on board to direct and reprise his position as Gollum.

The fan-made Hunt for Gollum is about throughout opening act of The Fellowship of the Ring and fills in a quest that was solely briefly mentioned in Jackson’s 2001 movie: Gandalf (performed by Patrick O’Connor within the quick) meets with Aragorn (Adrian Webster) and asks him to hunt for Gollum to search out out extra about Frodo’s magic ring. Aragorn has a collection of adventures, traps and loses Gollum and will get attacked by orcs and Ringwraiths. Gollum is recaptured by the Elves of Mirkwood, and he’s interrogated by Gandalf.

Warner Bros. made the shock LOTR announcement Thursday throughout its first-quarter earnings convention name and famous that Lord of the RingsThe Hunt for Gollum was a working title.

But the prospect of a film seemingly centered across the tormented creature which Jackson and Serkis so memorably delivered to life within the unique trilogy is receiving some heavy skepticism from followers on-line. The CG-enabled character was, in spite of everything, a reasonably ideally suited supporting character — so very particular and, at turns, amusing and detestable. A bit of Gollum went a good distance, and he was at all times balanced by the grounded performances of his touring companions performed by Elijah Wooden (Frodo) and Sean Astin (Sam).

However given the storyline recommended by the fan-made quick, the movie’s lead character may really transform Aragorn, with Gandalf and Gollum in additional supporting roles.

It’s unclear if the fan-made movie helped encourage WB’s challenge. However one suspects that the recognition of the online game The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, which was launched final 12 months, was not less than a part of the challenge’s inspiration.

This story initially posted on Might 9 and has since been up to date to notice the YouTube elimination and WB restoring the film.
