February 15, 2000Uma Thurman Not Involved in LOTR
It's pretty much conclusive now that
Uma Thurman will not be involved in any way whatsoever with the Lord of the Rings
A couple of days ago TheOneRing.net announced that it had received word
from a very reliable source that Thurman would not be in the LOTR films. They contacted
Thurman's agent yesterday, who had no comment.
Today I received word from Cirdan of
the German movie site Herr der Ringe Film
that Michael Deluca had confirmed that Thurman will not be involved.
What does this mean for Jackson's
trilogy? I don't think it has any major bearing at this current juncture. The big question
now is who will end up playing Eowyn. Several other ladies are rumored to be involved.
We announced last year that Mira
Sorvino was being considered for the part of Eowyn. Some also speculated that Cate
Blanchett might get the part, but she ended up being chosen to play the Lady Galadriel.
All we can do at this point is wait
for Jackson and his crew to make a formal announcement, and on the side, continue working
on finding out who will ultimately play the sister of Eomer. Keep visiting to stay
