All the Tostitos are belong to us

The Beatles planned to do a live-action version [of The Lord of the Rings] with Paul McCartney as Frodo Baggins, Ringo Starr as Sam Gamgee, George Harrison as Gandalf, and John Lennon as Gollum. The group approached Stanley Kubrick to direct the film. [source]

Instead, we got The Wiz.

It's not too late to pull Peter Jackson and friends off The Hobbit and install, I dunno, Darren Aronofsky and Radiohead.

Thom Yorke as Bilbo Baggins. Nigel Godrich as Gandalf.


The Wizard was a Universal production.

Vivendi owns a stake in both NBC Universal and Activision Blizzard.

Idea: A remake of The Wizard that culminates at BlizzCon in Anaheim with a game of Diablo III.

—Sony should acquire the rights.
—"I love the PlayStation Phone. It's so bad!"

The Wizard turned 21 years old last month.

    Thom Yorke has gollum like qualities I'd say.
