Howard Shore Confirms LORD OF THE RINGS
Dan Goldwasser

As should be no surprise by now, Howard Shore has confirmed that he will indeed be scoring the Lord of the Rings trilogy of films for Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema. SoundtrackNet broke the news that Shore was attached to the film back in July, and since then the flurry of rumors and gossip has been non-stop. But with a few websites (and Shore himself) confirming, it is now safe to say that it is no longer a rumor.
