Well, yesterday ol Zorianna Kit over at THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER broke the Frank Darabont/Chuck Russell/Ahnuldt/DOC SAVAGE scoop, and today she confirms up the Elijah Wood as Frodo casting news that AICN broke back around the first week of May. This is the official first confirmed (through the trades) bit of casting on LORD OF THE RINGS. Look for more announcements of cast members in short order as filming will begin in about a month and a half. Man... Can you believe that, then we'll only have to wait till... Summer 2001... sheesh.
