Cate Blanchett and Sir Ian McKellen may decline Hobbit roles in pay row
"Seven global actors' unions have instructed their members to walk away from roles in the two big-budget Lord of the Rings prequels because producers have allegedly refused to negotiate a deal guaranteeing wages and working conditions for performers in New Zealand.
"Unions in the US, Australia, the UK and Canada, acting under the umbrella of the International Federation of Actors (FIA), said Kiwi performers had "struggled on non-union contracts" for some years during filming of the Lord of the Rings trilogy."
