The Hobbit & The Bridge LOTR Film - Page 9
Since I brought the script here originally, I'm happy to explain I got it from The Tracking Board, an industry forum that has access to a lot of scripts - unmade, going to be made, classics, current, etc. It was posted there on Saturday.
erik: You really have the Zimmerman draft? Damn. I thought the only place you could read that (and the Boorman script, prior to Saturday) was by going to Marquette University where the Tolkien Papers are located.
Yeah, I have it -- both, actually. There were two drafts. Both contain the hand-written notes that have been widely referenced in Tolkien biographies.
Not as big-shit crazy as Boorman's, but equally baffling.
The makers of the Throbbit and Dork of the Rings certainly have made a niche for themselves in the Tolkien fan-world. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2269249/?ref_=tt_ov_dr
Their film Harvey Putter, features Kiran Shah who played a goblin in Potter and is the world's second-most popular leading British-Asian actor of restricted growth after Deep Roy, having been an Ewok, Abu in Raiders, and done everything from doubling Christopher Reeve in Superman to appearing in the Many Wives of Patrick.
EDIT: I too am surprised at the LOTR script not being leaked. I imagine Jackson is of the view that whatever didn't get filmed is not worth showing.

Hopefully a book is coming featuring all the drafts. I think Guillermo del Toro's Hobbit drafts we'd be all curious about too! Guess he could write a whole book on that one with the amount of prep he put into it.
