Wood’s Kong dreams dashed

LONDON: Elijah Wood, star of the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, wanted to star in King Kong movie but he had to abandon the plan because his fellow stars were too busy. Contactmusic.com reports Wood was in discussion with director Peter Jackson about the trio of hobbits making a cameo appearance in King Kong but costars Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd were busy working on other projects. He says: “We conceived of trying to get the hobbits in it, maybe getting stomped on by a giant foot. We never got to do it as Dom was busy on Lost, and Billy was working.”
