Late last night, I received this script excerpt from a spy at New Line. According to my contact, this is from the chapter "Flight to the Ford" in The Lord of the Rings. Arwen (the replacement for Glorfindel) is driving the Black Riders off from the Ford. This is exclusive to our site and you won't see it anywhere else!
SPOILER ALERT!!!!! Highlight below to read.
Aragorn: Behold her! Arwen, daughter of Elrond, warrior princess! See how the light shines on her sword? She is mighty among the Elves of Middle-earth.
ARWEN rides towards the BLACK RIDERS with her sword drawn. The BLACK RIDERS begin backing away, and finally turn and ride away quickly.
Arwen (shouting): Fly, foul spirits of Sauron! Be gone and trouble us no more in life or in death!
BLACK RIDERS continue riding away. One lags behind. ARWEN rides up quickly, swinging her sword down, and beheads the BLACK RIDER with a single stroke. He collapses to the ground and we see that all that is left is a cloak.
ARWEN grabs the Black Riders head and hangs it on her belt, riding back to meet Aragorn at the Ford.
Aragorn: My love! How amazing it is to see you fight like a man!
Arwen: Truly, Aragorn, it wonderful in my heart to know that you approve, and that you may safely remain behind doing laundry for my father, Elrond, whilst I lead the Fellowship to the Mountain of Doom in Mordor.
