I hope I didn't step on your toes by suggesting someone contact you about it too. I just don't think mine's working out too well and I wanted to be helpful but at the same time I hope that didn't put you on the spot..

Not at all, sir. I'm happy to share.

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.

Tolkien's disgust at the hobbits eating "ridiculously long sandwiches" is one of my favorite Tolkien things ever.

I'll dig out the script this weekend and get a snap of his irate comments.  The sandwiches didn't sit well with him at all.

Although I'm not a fan of the film, did Peter S. Beagle's draft of Bakshi's Lord of the Rings Part 2 ever get released?

post #409 of 416

Has someone ever released the original 2 script Jackson draft before New Line greenlighted 3 films?

 

I remember being so excited reading this review.

 

Could be a fascinating draft.

I read it a long time ago. I don't trust my impressions from way back then.

I'm surprised it was never leaked. I think McWeeny also reviewed it for AICN.

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.

post #414 of 416

Yes, hell, Del Toro could run a publishing house with the amount of scripts he's had that never reached production. 

post #415 of 416

Del Toro must be long past the point where the number of projects he's left surpasses the projects he's completed. Wonder if he's beaten Joe Carnahan's record of leaving productions.

post #416 of 416

I realize I'm very late on this, but could someone send me the link to the Boorman script?  That would be... fascinating, to say the least.
