The Hunt for Gollum is a fan-made addition to the Lord of the Rings saga, with its world premiere on the 3rd of May, 2009. From a quick look at the two trailers, it’s looking pretty darn good.
The script for the Hunt for Gollum has been pieced together from the appendices of the Lord of the Rings books. Chris Bouchard, the writer-director, then assembled a team of dedicated cast and crew and began filming around the UK. The 40 minute movie is completely non-commercial and will be released online and free to download.
