Mount Taranaki not needed for The Hobbit Can't Post

It looks like they're going digital for The Lonely Mountain - no real-life stand-in is sought, although other RL mountain landscapes are still be looked at.

From the Taranaki Daily News: Mountain not needed for movie


Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
