Two Great Tastes That Taste Great Together

with 2 comments

According to Peter Jackson, who knows a little something about making Lord of the Rings movies, John Lennon was the Beatle most keen on LOTR back in the ’60s—and he wanted to play Gollum, while Paul McCartney would play Frodo, Ringo Starr would take on Sam, and George Harrison would beard it up for Gandalf. And he approached a pre-2001 Stanley Kubrick to direct.

“It was something John was driving and J.R.R. Tolkien still had the film rights at that stage, but he didn’t like the idea of the Beatles doing it. So he killed it,” Jackson said.

J.R.R. Tolkien once killed a Beatles Lord of the Rings film.

  1. Three great tastes, really, if you count Kubrick.
