This morning I was riding in the train when I heard two fellows discussing an upcoming movie. They likened it to The Lord of the Rings with orcs and elves and (I think) magicians etc. They also mentioned that it is a story that originally appears in books. I've been trying to figure out what books these are, because I am interested in potentially reading them.
Below are all the details I can recall:
- There are elves, similar to the elves in The Lord of the Rings, but these are dark elves. (They mentioned they can reuse the elves from lord of the rings when making the movie and just color the hair black)
- Also, there was something of red elves that may or may not be included in the story
- Pretty sure there is magic related to the story in one form or another
- There was something about different gods (e.g. god of chaos, god of x, god of y, etc.) which may or may not still exist
- They mentioned the name Thommas a few times in a way that makes me think he is one of the main characters
- They mentioned something about some bloke (may or may not be the Thommas fellow mentioned above) being stuck somewhere eternally fighting something, or his body being stuck there or some similar plot
- They mentioned orcs, but I'm not sure whether or not this is included in the story or part of the discussion about Lord of the Rings
Like I said, I heard this from 2 blokes in the train, and I was not about to walk up to them and ask what story they are discussing. I hope I've gathered enough details for someone to help me identify the story.
Oh, I just recalled one last thing. There was something about a queen or some other important woman who is apparently a red head.
