The Beatles In The Lord Of The Rings

(1/5) > >>

Mr. Kite:
Apparently in the '60s The Beatles and John in particullar wanted to star in a film version of The Lord Of The Rings with Paul as Frodo, Ringo as Sam, George as Gandalf and John as Gollum but J.R.R Tolkien nixed the idea.  I don't know about you guys but I wish they would have done it because I would have loved to have seen it John would be great as Gollum as well as George, Paul and Ringo they would be great in their roles.  If they would have made this movie who here would love to see it?  I know I would love it.

Paul as Frodo,
Ringo as Samwise,
John as Gollum,
George as Gandalf.

Sounds weird, looks weird.

Mr. Kite:
In the back of my mind I could really see John as Gollum and George as Gandalf I think it would have worked.  It would have been better then the 70's animated version of the Lord Of The Rings at any rate.

Mr. Kite

That would be funny! I think it would downplay the artistic merits of the movie though. people would just go to see it cause "THE BEATLES" were in it and not necessarily because it's a good movie.
