I just wanted to highlight these rumors, mostly because
they're interesting and too lengthy to post in the Rumors area.
The word is out that Peter Jackson is getting
pressure from New Line Cinema to increase the presence of females in the films by creating
two new warrior princess (Valkyrie type) roles. Initial discussions are to have the women
trek down from the northern hills of the Ered Luin near the Icebay of Forochel and join
the fellowship at Rivendell. New Line's current first choice to play the parts are Oprah
Winfrey and Rossie O'Donnell. -- THARAN
Fran Walsh is a big X-files fan and is trying
to persuade PJ to introduce an extra-terrestrial element into the films by developing a
sub-plot that Sauron's special powers are the result of being a human-alien hybrid, and
that Aragorn is in fact his long lost son. -- TOM
Hmmm. Well folks, this is the age we're living in!
