Imagine Sillmarion as a movie ? We gotta hope The Hobbit becomes good because if they do... Eventualy Sillmarion will be created in 5-10 years from now its a long wait however.
Brian Blessed would be a perfect Balin!
Bard has got to be jeromy irons, he is such a legend
First when I heard about Hobbit movie years ago.. I was like "Of..My..God!". Perfect flop which will destroy whole point of lotr.
(like the humour to make Pirates of the Caribbean 4)
But now I am becomming inspired Now this sounds actually very fascinating...
All I hope that they make the movie well and dont screw up this.
Oh btw: Conan as Balin!Spoiler Alert, click show to read:
They are filling in gaps with Gandalf's adventures in Mirkwood, etc...should be interesting...
Daniel Day Lewis is terrific in almost any role though I'm not sure he fits the stature of Bard as I've always pictured him....but then again, I wasnt sure about Agent Smith as Lord Elrond either and I think that was perfect casting.
Just call me BENTLE, everyone else does...
Jeremy Irons has to be in there somewhere, Brian Blessed would be brilliant too.
Actually, I don't Mr Irons would be too bad as Smaug... A little voice enhancement, of course.
What about the guy that played Xerxes in "300"?
Christopher Lee wants to perform Smaug's voice,but there will be a problem:the voice of Saruman(because he will be in the movie),but if he will be Smaug,i think his voice will be modified digitaly(how John-Rhys-Davis create the voice of Treebeard in LOTR,with Andy Serkis).I think Liam Neeson or Sean Connery will be perfect for Smaug's voice.
Dragonheart. As much as I adore SC and his voice it would just be silly. Smaug needs to sound evil(tm) and menacing.
The AI is like a retarded overwieght child. He realy want all those fries, he just does not know how to get them. http://img1.coolspacetricks.com/imag...unny/81776.gif
I think this movie is going to hinge on Smaug. One of the best literary villains around...if they don't nail it and I mean REALLY nail it, it's going to deflate the entire film...maybe even the series.
Dragons are tough to do too so the task is daunting...Think of how many movie dragons were really pulled off well
You know...one of the things that made the Joker so good in TDK was his ability to range his voice from creepy to dangerous in a heart beat. I think I'd like to see that kind of a quality in the voice actor whomever he may be.
Just call me BENTLE, everyone else does...
but not that much. i guess he wont make the eagles speak too. and i would
like that because i cant imagine speaking animals at all, even if tolkien wanted
it that way. i know that the important speech of smaug in his cave would be
missed than but i think there will be a solution. also for the eagles and the
what i'm wondering about is how they will realize the giants thet play "boule"
in the mountains and what the elven town and esgaroth will look like. and i'm
really exited about the battle of te five armies / that will be totlly awesome.
Actually Guillermo del toro is making the hobbit movies and here's what he got to say about that:Spoiler Alert, click show to read:
ah okay / that is really interesting. we'll see how they handle it
becuse i just can't imagine talking animals in LOTR. it reminds of
the chronicles of narnia (which are good movies but absolutley
no comparison for LOTR) it could be kinda cheesy i think.
well at least jackson is producer and writer so this decission is
up to him too. but no matter what comes / it will be amazing at all.
Me too, Tolkien's Dragons are so awesome. If done successfully this could open the door for other movies based on tolkien's books, perhaps not Silmarillion but Children of Hurin now that I could see being made into a movie(s) with a even more terrifying dragon.
I agree with what you said jan that they shouldn't have talking animals, because you can have the best cgi and music and if you have the wrong actors voicing smaug & the eagles then it would rune the movie ..IMO of course... But who knows that might nail it...I just hope they take their time deciding on "who & how they are going to voice them"...
I KNOW MY NAME IS supposed TO BE MISPELLED
Please leave your name if you give me rep, so I can rep you back thanks
Yep, no Silmarillion movie. t would be destructive...
I don't like the animal voices. Too Narnia and fairy tales as mentioned. Smaug can be represented as talking via his though to the person's though...
Also Beorn himself (me) disapproves the candidates for hs role. Too "soft", remind Harry Potter & THe Lost, no LOTR at all...
