Roger Friedman’s latest article on the Fox News website has this small blurb on ROTK. And by the way, Messrs. Shaye and Lynne how’s the new “Lord of the Rings” movie coming? Will it make its mid December deadline? “Just barely,” was the unanimous answer, although I am paraphrasing. Turns out director Peter Jackson is in London frantically trying to finish all the special effects. “But we did have a screening last week,” the pair reported. “And it’s phenomenal.”
I tend to think Friedman mis-quoted, PJ is/was in London working on the score, not SFX.
