July 2000

E! Online's latest FORCE OF HOBBIT feature includes an interview with Cate Blanchett on playing Galadriel. More and more of the cast members are beginning to speak about their roles in interviews, and the TOLKIEN Online site is featuring one such piece with Brad Dourif on playing Wormtongue.

NEW LINE attended the annual SAN DIEGO COMIC CON over the weekend of July 21st, where they presented a special "making-of" featurette on LORD OF THE RINGS alongside a presentation on THE CELL and LOST SOULS.

Christopher Lee recently discussed his role in the films at his own official website: "I recently finished playing Saruman the White, the Wizard in LORD OF THE RINGS. It has always been a dream of mine to bring to the screen the marvels of this wonderful work and this has allowed me to take part in a production which could well be the pinnacle of my acting career. I can't talk about it more than that, so you'll have to wait and see!"

The full cast and crew resumed production on July 24th.
