Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers:Daily News.com got a hold of Barrie Osbourne, one of the producers of The Two Towers where the spoke of the post production of the movie, which is still in progress! Take a look:
"It's really a nail-biter for me," admits producer Barrie Osbourne of the flick in which Elijah Wood, Cate Blanchett, Ian McKellan and Orlando Bloom reprise their roles from last year's blockbuster. (An extended-edition DVD of that flick is due next week).
How can it be that a movie that finished principal photography in December 2000 is still in post-production? Strangely enough, it has to do with all the accolades received by the first "Lord of the Rings" early this year. Its 13 Academy Award nominations, its multiple British Academy awards, plus other honors resulted in major time commitments for director Peter Jackson. And that, explains Osbourne, "made us start editing the second film late, and that made the pickup shooting we did go late, and everything else went late."
"The thing about Peter is, he'll fight to the last minute to perfect the film," Osbourne says, "but when you finally say you must have it, he'll have it for you."
In addition, many new photos are now online from the film. We'll be posting many photos shortly, but for now, check this out:
We also heard from a very reputable source that the run time for The Two Towers is going to be 2 hours and 59 minutes!!!
What did she have to say about the big budget sequel? "I'm not allowed to reveal anything. We're not allowed to talk about it but I know that in the X-men lore, Mystique is Nightcrawler's mother, which Alan Cumming wasn't aware of until a few weeks ago. We don't establish that in this movie, so it doesn't matter for what we're doing. For me on a personal level, it's so nice having another blue person to commiserate with during lunch. I've been the only blue person up until now. Our makeup trailers are right next door to each other, so we visit each other."

Jurassic Park 4: According to Variety, Universal has greenlit the next Jurassic Park film with a script penned by Tripoli scribe, William Monahan.
"It's being written by Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel [Multiplicity], and it's being designed by William Joyce [A Bug's Life]," Wedge said in an interview. "So it's a real fun, big collaboration, and it's going to be a really colorful, funny movie. It's not [science fiction]. It's a completely fresh take on the world of mechanical people."
"We're working on treatments for it right now," Wedge said. "I think the studio is certainly interested. I'm happy. You get to know all these characters, and we have a million spinoff stories. But I'm just kind of consumed by [Robots], and I have to take it one step at a time."
Expect "Robots" sometime in 2004.

Terminator-3.Co.uk:So, Alana, from what weve heard you get an ass whooping from the TX! Can you give away any teasers about this brand new bad girl? For example, her powers, what shes capable of? Is she quite aggressive or is she more stealth like We know you cant give away plot lines but a few teasers to make the Terminator fans hungry for more? Go on plllleeeaaasseee!
Alana: Well, it's not exactly an "ass whooping". All I can say is that we do have an encounter with the TX. To tell you the truth, I don't really know the full extent of her powers. But she seemed to be very intimidating and powerful.
Terminator-3.Co.uk: How many times did you have to audition for your part in T3?
Alana: Since I just had a small role (2 scenes) I didn't have to go through the multiple callbacks and screen test of the leads. Normally for the type of role this is, I would have just had one audition and one callback. However, surprisingly I skipped right to the callback and auditioned directly for Jonathan.
