Jessica Alba too old???
Has the world gone mad???
I still like my idea for Luthien...if I chip in another $50 can we choose Jessica over Liv?
I've seen Tilda play Gabrielle and the White Witch, and she certainly can pull off an androgynous role! I also like the idea of Cate Blanchett as the sensual fair Sauron. Don't get me wrong, I really like Cate as an actor, but I was pretty disappointed she got Galadriel. But I agree she could pull off Sauron. Overall, I'd suggest Cate.
Are you sure you could fit it all into one movie? Might have more luck selling it to the studios if it were in multi-parts. Everyone's in love with trilogies!
Whatever we do, don't have George Lucas anywhere near the script. He'll kill any romantic scene between Beren and Luthien with lines like
"I don't like sand, it is rough, I like you, you're smooth."
Our financing concerns may soon be over. Don't spread this outside this forum, but I just got a desperate plea of help from the daughter of an ex-dictator in Nigeria who is looking for someone in Australia who she can wire $2.1 billion to!
