Silmarillion, The Movie

Post#171 » Fri Dec 29, 2006 1:13 pm

I cannot see how a single movie of The Sil can be made, it seems hopeless.
As for the casting, I would rather have complete unknowns that were absolute Tolkien fanatics and knew the books off by heart rather than well known performers. Boring.
I realize that the choices made for LOTR's was great but still I would like to see skilled performers that noone really knew. I think that would bring a beauty and freshness and excitement that would not otherwise be there.

I will do it! I will make a movie of The Silmarillion, even though... I do not have the resources.

Ah, good, now that the conman/thief is gone, I'll give 1700 mithril to it.
No, seriously, if I can ever get the resources, I would definitely make a film from at least one of the tales in the Silmarillion. As well as several other films, like the Prydain Chronicles, all that they would need would be a faithful and loving touch, and they'd be top movie of the year.

Axes on a plane? Try snakes instead, belligerent friend.

You should ask the air hostesses if they had any chance for applying law with an angry dwarf brandishing his axe and threatening to cut the head of anyone who moved. The air marshall got so frightened that he went to hide in the toilets. :elfbiggrin:
