Cast & Crew
The Compleat Sean Bean
September 24, 1999
Confirmed as Boromir
Sean has been confirmed in the part of
Boromir in The Fellowship of the Rings, the first film in the Lord of the Rings
trilogy. Click here for the
Lord of the Rings page.
Here's some earlier news that we
missed from The Complea Sean Bean,
including a message from Sean's agent discussing his offer.
Despite assorted confirmations of Sean being cast
as Boromir in LOTR on various websites, Sean's agent in the UK has advised me the role is
still being negotiated.
As Sean Bean's agent and the person negotiating the deal
for Sean Bean on LOTR, I can confirm that Harry Knowles is correct in that Sean Bean has
been offered the part of Boromir by New Line, however until satisfactory negotiations have
been concluded and we are currently still in discussions, I would never assume that
anything is definite.
Out of fairness to Sean and his agent -- and not to take
anything away from all the webmasters who have diligently been tracking the casting of the
LOTR trilogy, and who have been in touch and who have directed fans of LOTR to The
Compleat -- until I receive absolute confirmation from London that all the negotiations
are over and done with, all the t's are crossed and the i's are dotted, Sean Bean as
Boromir will stay on the Rumours page (for now).
