This week’s production shot of the week offers a tantalising glimpse into a scene that was omitted from Peter Jackson’s The Lord of fhe Rings: The Two Towers.

In the original script, upon Faramir encountering Frodo, Samwise and Gollum, Faramir has a vision of how Frodo will look should the ring take complete hold of him.

This shot shows Elijah Wood looking eerily similar to Gollum.

The completed scene has never been released, however you can learn more about the sequence during the Appendices on the Extended Edition of the film.
