Filming Resumes

The Dominion – January 18, 2000

Filming Lord of the Rings began again in Wellington last night,
this time leaving behind the leafy
town belt for sets built in this
Hayward’s Hill quarry. Filming will
take place mainly at night. Peter
Jackson is directing the $260
million trilogy, based on fantasy
novels by JRR Tolkien, for
American production company New Line Cinema.


Production of the movie was disrupted when sets were
washed away by floodwaters near Queenstown two months
ago, and New Zealand producer Tim Sanders resigned last
week.

British actor Sir Ian McKellen, 61, arrived in Wellington during
the Weekend to play wizard Gandalf, joining stars Liv Tyler, Sir
Ian Holm and Elijah Wood.
