Now, obviously I can't vouch for this film (because it hasn't come out yet and won't until December), but some independent filmmakers are taking a stab at The Lord of the Rings story. Writer/Director Chris Bouchard (an entry of this name exists in imdb, but I currently have no way of knowing if it is the same person) is behind the project. Most of the footage of scenery was shot in Wales, and it is basically just a low-budget higher quality fanfilm. It is based off of the appendices of LOTR that explain Aragorn's hunt for Gollum. Not much more to say about it until it comes out, but here are the two trailers that have been released (trailers below) and also a link to the site if you want to check it out.
