      RINGS IS GIVEN A TITANIC BUDGET

      After analyzing production cost projections, New Line Cinema has agreed
      to increase the budget for the film version of Tolkien's Lord of the
      Rings
      to $190 million, which will make it the most expensive film ever
      produced
      with the exception of Titanic, the Wellington, NZ Sunday Star-Times
      reported. Work on the film has already approached a frenetic pace, the
      newspaper indicated. "You can't get a carpenter in Wellington for love
      nor
      money," a film technician told the Star-Times. Meanwhile, New Line has
      confirmed that Elijah Wood has been cast in the key role of the hobbit
      Frodo Baggins. The Hollywood Reporter reported today (Monday) that
      Sean Astin will play Baggins' servant, Sam Gamgee.
