      WOOD IS FRODO IN NEW LINE'S TOLKIEN TRILOGY

      Elijah Wood has been cast in the lead role of Frodo Baggins in New
      Line Cinema's live-action trilogy feature "The Lord of the Rings," based
      on
      J.R.R. Tolkien's internationally renowned fantasy novels. Production
      begins
      shooting in October in New Zealand. The project marks a major commitment

      from Wood, since principal photography will last more than a year on
      each
      film -- "The Fellowship of the Ring," "The Two Towers" and "Return of
      the
      King" -- and they will be shot back to back. Peter Jackson ("Heavenly
      Creatures") will direct the mythical project, which tells the saga of a
      desperate
      battle against encroaching evil -- a perilous quest to save humanity
      that falls
      upon the shoulder of Frodo, who has inherited a seemingly magic ring
      from his
      elderly cousin Bilbo.

      On a side note...Sean Astin will play Sam Gamgee.
