QUARRY BATTLE - Actors dressed in armour and waving swords could be seen marching on a set for Peter Jacksonís Lord of the Rings film project in a quarry below Haywards Hills early today. Filming on the set for the $360 million epic began last month.
The fortress and castle-like structures are understood to represent Helmís Deep - a fortified ravine in JRR Tolkienís classic trilogy. In his second book, The Two Towers, Helmís Deep is besieged by armies of creatures called orcs and men obedient to the wizard Saruman.
Interest in the set has been high because parts of it can be seen easily from the road.
Onlookers have parked their cars across from the set entrance at night in the hope of getting a peek at filming.
