The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
Just found on IMDb...

Lord Of The Rings actor Christopher Lee is fuming after discovering all of his scenes have been cut from the third and final fantasy epic. The 81-year-old, who plays Saruman in the first two Lord Of The Rings films, says he was "shocked" and mystified by his exclusion from The Return Of The King - which hits cinemas worldwide next month - and has vowed to boycott the star-studded premieres. Lee says, "The only reason I'm able to say this is because it was on the internet and has been for some days. I only heard recently. As far as I'm concerned, I'm only telling you this because it has been revealed on the internet, someone has talked and it certainly wasn't me. Of course I am very shocked, that's all I can say. If you want to know why you would have to ask the company New Line or director Peter Jackson and his associates because I still don't really know why. I can't say any more because I signed a confidentiality agreement and I honored my word." And after being asked if he planned to attend any of the premieres, Lee snapped back, "No, what's the point? What's the point of going? None at all."

Ok.....What the #@$$^#Q?!?!!!

So he should be upset! Christopher Lee's Saruman is one of many great things about the LotR films. I wouldn't mind hearing some justification on why he won't be in RotK. They didn't need to cut all his scenes, did they?

Current Mood: annoyed annoyed

They can't cut him! What about the Scouring of the Shire and whatnot?

From what I hear, they’re going to claim he died in the siege of Orthanc and/or show him being dead, and that’s about it. So yeah, Scouring of the Shire shall be cut if it is true. Which I’m not entirely sure is woe or not, because they *are* deviating from the book, but then again, I really hated that bit in the book. (Nobody touches the hobbitses! ^_^) Also, since they have to go through the whole Shelob shebang, perhaps they had to cut for length, or something.

Just doin’ my part to keep the rumour mill churning. :: tips hat ::
