Makoare Talks ROTK/The Hobbit
Today at the Armageddon Expo in Auckland Lawrence Makoare jumped up on stage for a bit of an impromptu chat during the Weta/Sideshow discussion panel.
Not sure if you already knew, but he mentioned that he and Miranda Otto were returning in May to reshoot the entire Witch King sequence, as apparently PJ decided his armor looked altogether too similar to Sauron’s. Lawrence didn’t mention the inclusion of Merry here, but HOPEFULLY this was just an oversight on his part…eek!
He also revealed he has a very strong hunch that PJ will make The Hobbit, and the guy from Weta expressed extreme glee at the prospect of designing a dragon.Posted in Old Special Reports on April 14, 2003 by xoanon
