      RINGS FX FARMED OUT?

      WETA Digital, the New Zealand special-effects house, will farm out some
      of
      the FX work on Peter Jackson's upcoming Lord of the Rings film trilogy,
      according to a report on TheOneRing.net fan Web site. Citing an
      anonymous
      source, the site reported that WETA will subcontract work to Los
      Angeles-based Digital Domain (The Fifth Element), Australia's Animal
      Logic
      (The Matrix) and New Zealand's Oktobor, the site reported.

      The site reported that the move was necessary for the first film, The
      Fellowship of the Ring, to meet its Dec. 19 release date. The change is
      the
      latest under the new visual effects supervisor, Jim Rygiel, who took
      over
      when former supervisor Mark Stetson abruptly left the production in the
      spring.
